What you need to know
about Pool Fencing Certification in NSW
After 29th April 2016, if you’re selling or leasing a property that has a swimming pool, then you’ll need your pool barrier inspected by an Accredited Certifier. With a solid understanding of Aussie homes and pools, we can give you the right advice tailored to your needs to help you reach compliance.
This certificate of compliance or non-compliance must be attached to the contract for sale of properties with a swimming pool or spa pool.
Therefore, from 29 April 2016, when a property with a swimming pool is being sold, a valid swimming pool certificate of compliance (or an occupation certificate issued within the last three years) or a certificate of non-compliance must be attached to the Contract for the Sale of Land.
Failure to attach the certificate means that the purchaser may be entitled to rescind the Contract at any time within 14 days of exchange, unless settlement has already occurred
How it works
Most inspections take between 30 and 60 minutes. If your pool or spa fails the first inspection, we will make a full and detailed written report for all required work, including images of the areas reported. All reprts are sent to you via email within 3 days. We can also supply a hardcopy via post if requested.
You are required to make your pool fully compliant within six weeks of your first inspection and then we must carry out a second inspection.
