NSW Pool and Spa Barrier Inspection Program now in force
The NSW Pool and Spa Barrier Inspection Program has now commenced, coming into effect on 29 April.
All properties with a pool that are sold must have one of the following issued by the NSW Swimming Pool Register:
- A relevant occupation certificate;
- A certificate of compliance; or
- A certificate of non-compliance.
While a property can be sold with a non-compliant pool barrier, the buyer has 90 days from settlement to ensure the barrier is compliant and obtain a certificate of compliance. A certificate of non-compliance must be attached to the contract of sale.
Any property with more than two dwellings is exempt from this, as they are already regulated through mandatory three-yearly inspections.
Rental properties must have a certificate of compliance before a lease is signed for the property.
How will the program affect your business? Are you already feeling the effects? Let us know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
