A reminder to all of our landlords that all backyard swimming pools in NSW will have to be registered under new legislation enacted by the NSW state government.
The Swimming Pools (Amendment) Act 2012 will require all homeowners to register their pools, and spas, online by 29 October 2013, or face paying a fine. Pool owners will also be required to provide a valid compliance certificate before being able to sell or lease a property with a pool as of 29 April 2014.
The legislation also outlines requirements for councils which include:
Councils may charge a fee of up to a maximum of $150 for the inspections.
For more information about the Act, and for a checklist aimed at assisting you to assess the safety of your pool, see the Division of Local Government’s website: http://www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/
