Pool-safty-in-seven-hills-nswIf you are a property owner and the property has a swimming pool you must:

  1. Have your pool registered – this must be done immediately (this should already have been done);
  2. From 29 April 2014 you must have a valid certificate of compliance issued by either your local council or an accredited certifier.

If you are selling your property you must attach a certificate of compliance, and evidence that the pool has been registered, to the contract of sale.  If these documents are not attached to the contract of sale then purchaser has the right to rescind the contract after exchange.

If you are leasing your property, and the property has a pool, then from 29 April 2014 you must ensure the pool is registered; there is a valid certificate of compliance and the certificate of compliance must be given to the tenant.
