From the 29 April 2016, all properties being sold or leased with a swimming pool or spa pool will require a valid certificate of compliance, or a relevant Occupation Certificate to be annexed to the Contract for Sale, the Lease or the Residential Tenancy Agreement.
To obtain a certificate of compliance you will need to contact either Council or an Independent Accredited Certifier who is registered with the Building Professionals Board.
Independent Accredited Certifiers can be found on NSW Government Fair Trading website.
To avoid any unnecessary delays in selling or leasing your property, be proactive and give yourself plenty of time. To date, around 70% of pools inspected in Leeton will fail to obtain a certificate of compliance at the first inspection, with many requiring multiple re-inspections and a significant period of time before a compliance certificate is able to be issued.
Requirements to obtain a certificate of compliance vary depending on the age of the pool and the age of the property.
To apply for a Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate please complete the form below and send it to Council.
Council’s Building, Planning and Health staff can assist you in completing the form by phoning 02 6953 0911 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Portable and Blow-up Pools
Portable and blow-up pools are required to comply with exactly the same safety requirements as any other swimming pool.
