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 homeowners planning to sell and we’ve provided Non Compliance Certificates to Mark, Bruce, Latizia, Samantha, John, Alissa and Mario so now they can on-sell their properties without having to worry about rectification works if they so choose.
Ann-Maree rectified all non compliances and was issued with a Compliance Certificate.
Two owners of rental properties looked into what was required to achieve compliance and we’re happy to say their barriers were A1.
Their new tenants can now move in with no hold-ups!
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 homeowners who are not confident we can offer project management and deal direct with tradesmen on your behalf.
New owners have been busy during November rectifying their issues after moving into their properties –
Keep working towards achieving Compliance and remember those three months allowed will fly!
Owners with Compliant barriers can feel satisfied knowing their efforts will be rewarded with peace of mind.
With Summer approaching it’s time to get your swimming pool in order and at front of mind should be your entry gates.
The vast majority of inspected pools have gates that do not close correctly.
Well done to All!
