According to the latest Australian Building Standards it is mandatory to perform pool inspection on the property that one purchases. Not only buying, even if you are renting a home, selling a property or getting a new one it is compulsory under all conditions to have a pool inspection done. This rule has been established by the government and is compulsory for everyone to conduct the respected inspection.
Following are the consequences one might has to face if a proper pool inspection avoided:
If you are the owner of the property: If you own a property, it is mandatory for you to have a pool inspection done in every condition, this is an unavoidable rule. In case you miss the inspection, your selling process will get delayed. And being buyer’s call they will extend the requisite period to 90 days after the final deal of settlement.
If you are the landlord: If a landlord doesn’t conduct a pool inspection and get a certificate, he is forbidden to rent hid property, he can only rent his property once he gets a pool safety certificate.
If you are a body corporate: In case if a house is sold or is in the selling process or even is rented, it is mandatory for a body corporate to have a pool safety certificate.
