Updated Swimming Pool Laws
Are you up to date with the Pool Laws?
Do you own a Pool?
Are you a Landlord or thinking about selling your Property?
Then you need to make sure that your Pool is compliant before you sell or lease out your property!
From 29 April 2015:
● residential properties in NSW with a swimming pool or spa pool cannot be sold, and
● new residential tenancy agreements cannot
be entered into for properties with a swimming pool or spa pool unless they have a valid Certificate of Compliance or relevant occupation certificate. In a strata scheme, the owners corporation is responsible for ensuring there is a valid Certificate of Compliance or relevant occupation certificate for swimming pools or spa pools on common property. Work may need to be undertaken before a Certificate can be issued, so owners corporations should act now to ensure they have a valid Certificate of Compliance before 29 April 2015. Local councils and accredited private certifiers can provide information on how to obtain a Certificate.
