Pool Safety Certificates Cairns & Surrounds

As of the 1st December 2015, all swimming pools including spa pools and some portable pools, must be compliant with the Queensland Pool Safety Standards. It is also compulsory that every pool owner registers their pool on Queensland’s State-Wide Pool Register. Is your pool compliant?A pool safety certificate that has been issued by a licensed pool safety inspector is required when selling, buying or leasing any property with a pool. These certificates are valid for two years for a non-shared pool and one year for shared pools.

We can help you ensure your pool meets legal requirements, walking you through the current legislation and providing professional advice on pool fencing and barriers.

For sellers… we recommend a pre-sale Pool Safety Certificate, which you can obtain before you even list and is valid for up to two years. If there is no pool safety certificate obtained, before entering a sale contract or settlement it is the seller’s responsibility to provide an advisory notice to:

  • The potential buyer
  • Department of Housing and Public Works
  • Pool Owner, such as the body corporate for shared pools

For buyers… if you accept a Notice of No Pool Safety Certificate on purchasing a new property you have until 90 days post settlement to make the pool fence compliant and are liable for any costs required to certify your pool (unless otherwise negotiated under your individual contract).

For landlords… you must obtain a pool safety certificate before a lease is signed. This applies for body corporate as well. The existing safety certificate will cover any new leases or renewals within the validity period.
