The Division of Local Government has now delayed the commencement date for pool owners to obtain compliance certificates. Originally required by the end of this month, pool owners now have until April 29, 2015 to ensure their swimming pools and spa pools are compliant if they want to sell or enter into a new tenancy agreement for their property.
As of April 29, 2015, properties with a swimming pool or spa pool cannot be sold unless the property has a valid Certificate of Compliance or relevant occupation certificate. This also applies to new residential tenancy agreements, which cannot be entered into without the required certification.
There has been no change to the requirement of all pools to be registered via the swimming pool register. This change was introduced late last year, with a deadline of October 29, 2013. If you have not yet registered, please do so as soon as possible.
