Pools deadline extended for landlords and sellers

The New South Wales Government has extended the deadline for new rules that require a property with a swimming pool to have a certificate of compliance before it can be sold or leased.

Government Minister Don Page announced today that the deadline had been pushed
out by a year to April 29, 2015.

From that
date, all properties with a pool or spa pool must have a valid swimming pool
certificate of compliance before they can be sold or rented. The certificates
are valid for three years.

This change
only applies to certificates for properties that are to be sold or leased.

backyard pools in NSW still have to be registered and fines are applicable for
the owners of unregistered pools.

and real estate agents have requested more time to prepare properties to obtain
a compliance certificate before selling or leasing a property,” Page says.

especially in areas where there are many pools, have indicated they didn’t have
the resources to meet the deadline.’’

To check if your pool already has a certificate of
compliance, go to the Swimming Pools register, which is still open to register
existing pools and pools built in the future, at www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au
