Pool Safety Inspection

All properties with a pool are now required by law to have a Pool Safety Certificate when selling or leasing the property. These must be obtained from a licensed pool safety inspector.

BuildingPro can provide a Pre-Sale Pool Safety Inspection before you list or after you list the property with an agent. If defects are found, you will be given the opportunity to have them rectified. The pool fence can then be re-inspected within 90 days.

If you are buying a property and you accept responsibility for getting the Pool Safety Certificate you have 90 days post settlement to make the pool fence compliant.

Landlords need a Pool Safety Certificate at the first new or renewed accommodation agreement or lease signed after 8 July 2011.

Shared pools associated with long-term accommodation must have a Pool Safety Certificate by 30th November 2012. Shared pools associated with mixed accommodation (long and short term) must have a Pool Safety Certificate by 30 November 2012.
