Property Law News | April 2016

If you sell or lease a residential property with a swimming pool or spa pool you must have obtained a valid certificate of compliance from your local council or a private accredited certifier [category A1, A2, A3 or E1] OR an occupation certificate issued by either of these sources within the past 3 years that specifically authorises the use of the swimming pool or spa.

If you are required to fix the pool after the required swimming pool inspection, you can attach a certificate of non-compliance to the contract for sale of the property detailing what requires attention to become compliant. This will give the purchaser 90 days to make the pool compliant. This does not apply to leased properties.
