In New South Wales there are specific laws that impact anyone who is selling, buying or leasing a property with a pool. The intention of this legislation is increasing the safety of small children around backyard swimming pools.

If a property is being sold it must have one of the following:

  • A Certificate of Compliance
  • A Certificate of Non-Compliance
  • A Relevant Occupation Certificate (remains relevant for 3 years from date of issue).

If a property is being leased it must have one of the following:

  • A Certificate of Compliance
  • A Relevant Occupation Certificate (remains relevant for 3 years from date of issue).

A Certificate of Compliance remains valid for 3 years from the date of issue. If someone purchases a property that has a Certificate of Non-Compliance they have 90 days from the date of settlement to rectify the defects.

Registered Certifiers who have been nominated on the Swimming Pools Register can complete inspections of Swimming Pool Barriers.

To request an inspection with Local, applicants must complete an application form – Swimming Pool Barrier Inspection Request Form. Completed applications forms should be emailed to poolfences@localgroup.com.au

Before an inspection can be completed or a compliance certificate issued, the swimming pool must be registered on the NSW Swimming Pools register. The Registration can be completed at: www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au.

Once the application has been received, we will process the payment and one of our inspectors will get in touch to arrange a suitable time for the inspection to take place.

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to email poolfences@localgroup.com.au or call 1300 368 534.
