Under NSW law, it is the owner’s responsibility to make sure any pool on their property complies with safety regulations. If you’re considering purchasing a home with a pool, a non-compliant pool could end up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs. That is important to know and could be a deciding factor when considering whether or not to purchase the home. It could also affect the overall purchase price and the value of the home as well.
A certificate of compliance is a certificate which states that a pool has met government safety regulations. If the pool does not pass inspection, a certificate of non-compliance will be issued. Although the home can still be sold, it will be the new homeowner’s responsibility to make sure the pool becomes compliant within 90 days of the sale. At that point, the pool would need to be re-inspected.
At Summerland Pools, our flexibility allows us to schedule your pool inspection at a time that’s convenient for you. We’ll also provide you with a checklist ahead of time, so you know what we’ll be seeking. That gives you time to make any necessary repairs and will avoid the inconvenience of a failed inspection. Once the inspection is complete, we’ll provide you with a detailed report with a list of any needed repairs and recommendations. For pools that pass inspection, we’ll email a certificate of compliance the same day.
Our friendly team will walk you through the process and take any guesswork out. We’re also happy to perform any repairs needed to prepare your pool for inspection. If you’d like to do the repairs yourself, our fully stocked shop carries the parts you need.
