For sellers… the Queensland Government has made it necessary, from 1st December 2010, for sellers to arrange a Pool Safety Inspection and obtain a Compliance Certificate to confirm your pool fence complies with new Pool Safety Legislation… or disclose to buyers and the CEO of the Pool Safety Council. Now you can get a Pre-Sale Pool Safety Inspection as soon as you list or even better, before you list.
For buyers… if you accept responsibility for getting the Certificate you have until 90 days post settlement to make the pool fence compliant.
For landlords… A Pool Safety Certificate will be required at the first new or renewed accomodation agreement or lease signed after 8th July 2011.
