Swimming Pool Safety Certificate

A Pool Compliance Certificate must be handed over to the Buyer at Settlement (unless provided prior to) if there is a non-shared pool on the property. If a valid certificate has been issued and is current, this is easily performed. Certificates remain valid for two years for non-shared pool. If you are unsure whether your certificate is current, you can access a copy of the certificate on the pool register.
If a Seller does not have a current certificate, they should be sure to mention this to the agent and complete a ‘Form 36 – notice of no pool safety certificate’. This notice, if given to the Buyer prior to entering the contract will then relieve the Seller of the requirement to obtain a certificate prior to the Settlement Date. The Buyer will then be obliged to obtain a Certificate within 90 days of the Settlement Date. Failure to give the notice will mean that a Certificate must be obtained prior to Settlement and failure to do so would allow the Buyer to terminate the contract.
