Swimming pools and spas

What’s new?

Properties with a pool that are to be sold must have:

  • A certificate of compliance; or

  • A relevant occupation certificate and a certificate of registration; or

  • A certificate of non-compliance.

 

Purchasers of properties with a non-compliant pool have 90 days from settlement to rectify non-compliances.

 

Properties with a pool that are to be leased must have:

  • A certificate of compliance; or

  • A relevant occupation certificate and a certificate of registration.

 

Properties with more than two lots and a shared pool, such as units in strata complexes or community schemes are exempt from the above ‘sale and lease’ requirements. These properties remain subject to the existing laws and compliance framework requirements.
