The requirement however to provide a pool safety certificate before selling or leasing a property has now been extended until April 29 2015. From this date, all properties with a swimming pool listed for sale or lease must have a valid swimming pool certificate of compliance.
Multi-occupancy dwellings and tourist and visitor accommodation will also require a valid swimming pool certificate of compliance from April 29 2015.
The extension for providing a pool safety certificate will give pool owners more time to ensure their swimming pools meet all safety requirements before they sell or lease their property.
Swimming pools still need to be registered though, and penalties are applicable to those who haven’t registered yet. If you haven’t registered you can do so at www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au. For those who need help, the Liverpool City Council can register a pool on behalf of a pool owner using the registration form and checklist available at their Customer Services Centre.
The pool legislation is aimed at preventing accidents in backyard pools, so it is for the benefit of everyone if pools are safe and comply with all safety standards. If anyone requires more information about pool requirements in Liverpool, it is best to get in touch with the Liverpool City Council, they can be contacted on 1300 362 170.
