Pool Registration Updates

 

Latest Update:

 

If you are thinking of selling or leasing your property, an additional twelve months has been provided before you need to have a pool compliance certificate before you can sell or lease your property.

 

From 29 April 2015, all properties with a backyard swimming pool or spa that are sold or leased will need to have a valid swimming pool compliance certificate. This additional twelve months provides property owners with more time to ensure that their swimming pool is compliant before their property is sold or leased.

 

To organise an inspection for your backyard swimming pool or spa, please contact your local council or accredited certifier. Once a compliance certificate has been issued it is valid for three years.

 

For information on the things to look out for when checking your pool, please refer to the checklist on the swimming pool register. These things include:

  • Does the gate close by itself from any position?
  • Are there objects or trees close to the pool fence that children could use to gain access into the pool area?
  • Is there a resuscitation sign displayed?

Appropriate adult supervision is always the most important thing we can do to keep children safe around backyard pools and spa pools.

Note: (From the Kuringgai Council Letter)

kuringgai councilFrom 29 April 2014 all premises where a swimming pool or Spa pool is located that is either rented or placed on the market for sale must have a valid certificate of compliance, or relevant occupation certificate.  A copy of the certificate must be provided to the tenant, in the case of rental premises, or within the contract of sale.

Avoid the rush and apply for a certificate now.  Remember certificates of compliance are valid for three years from the date of issue.  Obtaining a certificate now will avoid delays at the critical time of property settlement.
