Swimming Pool Compliance for Home Owners

        If you are selling a home with a pool and/or spa,  you now need to apply for a Certificate of Compliance which is to be included in your Sales Contract.

If an Inspection reveals a non-compliant barrier, you may request a Non-Compliance Certificate

Properties with a pool or spa cannot be marketed without one of these Certificates.

We can provide you with guidance when it comes to issues of non-compliance.

        This month has seen many home owners planning to sell and we’ve provided Non Compliance Certificates to Nick, Marty, Jack, Jeff, Greg & Tim so now they can on-sell their properties without having to worry about rectification works if they so choose.

Stephanie, Ken, Rod, Craig, Shayne & Mark all rectified any non compliances  and were issued with a Compliance Certificate.  They can now sell their properties with confidence that the barriers are compliant – very appealing for purchasers!

Kaye suffered a spot inspection by her local Council and was unable to identify what was required by reading their report, so contacted us to explain exactly what is required for her to achieve a compliant barrier.  She has an old garden with a raft of issues that were not clearly explained to her by council inspectors. She now has a clear scope of works and her family can now confidently assist and instruct tradesmen of the necessary works.  For home owners who are not confident we can offer project management and deal direct with tradesmen on your behalf.

New owners have been busy during September rectifying their issues after moving into their properties – Keep working towards achieving Compliance and remember those three months allowed till fly!   Jen removed her old spa and can now rent our her property as the spa pool was formally removed from the Register.  Murali contacted us to explain just what he as a new owner needs to do and he now has a clear written scope of works to provide his tradesmen with, meaning errors are unlikely to be made.

Owners with Compliant barriers can feel satisfied knowing their efforts will be rewarded with peace of mind. With Spring well and truly here it’s time to get your swimming pool in order and at front of mind should be compliant barriers.

Well done to All !
