Pool Inspection Requirements For Body Corporates Gold Coast To Brisbane & Community Title Schemes

For shared pools the owner must:

  • Supply a pool safety certificate to tenant before signing a lease/sale or other accommodation agreement (e.g hotel stay or similar) taking place.

If there is no certificate the owner must:

  • Supply tenant/body corporate & department before entering into a lease the notice of no pool safety certificate. This is (form 36) and advises that pool may not comply. The pool owner has 90 days to obtain a pool safety certificate.

Leases entered into on or before 1 September 2012, a phase in period applies – the pool owner has until 30 November 2012 to obtain a pool safety certificate for the pool. If a new or renewed lease is entered into on or after 2 September 2012, the pool owner must obtain a pool safety certificate within 90 days of entering into the lease.

Note: When selling if the pool is associated with short-term accommodation (e.g hotels) the phase in period was six months from 1st December 2010 so you should have a pool safety certificate in place now.

Once again there are risks of penalty fines if you don’t comply and risks are even higher should a drowning or submersion injury occur in your pool. Don’t take risks it’s not worth the stress. A compliance certificate will last 1 year and we keep records and remind you before it runs out.

For any enquiries you can contact us or book a pool inspection.
