If a certificate of non-compliance is attached to the contract for sale, the vendor is transferring the obligation to obtain a certificate of compliance to the purchaser. The purchaser will have 60 days from the date of settlement to gain compliance.

Pool Inspection Services:

Sydney Pool Inspections is a dedicated swimming pool compliance certificate service. As registered E1 Swimming Pool Certifiers, our inspectors are licensed to issue pool fence compliance certificates on complying pool barriers. We are also highly knowledgable on all aspects of pool fencing and materials including aluminium, timber and glass pool fencing.

A compliance inspection on your swimming pool or spa will generally take between 30 – 60 minutes to complete. As part of a pool compliance inspection, all areas of the pool fence will be inspected including pool gates, fencing panels, boundary fencing or structures used as part of the pool barrier. If the barrier is found to be compliant and meets the NSW pool fencing regulations, a pool compliance certificate can be issued.

Since April 28 2o16 NSW properties with a swimming pool or spa require a pool compliance certificate prior to a property being leased or when it is sold. A Pool Compliance Certificate can only be issued once the entire pool barrier has been inspected and found to be compliant. The certificate is valid of a period of 3 years from its issue date. To view if a pool is registered on a property or has a compliance certificate, view the NSW Government’s Pool Register.

This service involves a pool certifier visiting the property and providing advice and certification issues. The advice inspection is verbal only and does not come with a written report like a general pool fence compliance inspection. This is a great service for a prospective buyer or home owner who is only after advice and not a formal inspection.

Repairs to pool fencing is often needed to make your pool fence compliance. Adjustments to gates that no-longer self-close, replacement of pool fence panels that are damaged/non-compliant or perhaps the installation of a whole new pool barrier. Although we do not complete pool fencing repairs ourselves, we can recommend skilled pool fencing installers with experience is glass, timber and aluminium pool fencing. From minor pool fence repairs to a complete aluminium or glass pool fence – they can do it all!
