As of 1 December 2015, every Swimming Pool and Spa owner must comply with the pool safety laws introduced in 2009 for all existing and new pools and spas.
By obtaining a pool safety inspection you can satisfy yourself that the pool you are purchasing is registered and conforms to the pools safety laws which include fencing, safety barriers and signage.
Once you purchase a property, you become liable for any issues that may exist, therefore it is in the interest of the purchaser to satisfy themselves that their new pool is registered and conforms to the necessary safety standards.
