Amendments to Backyard Pool Regulations Applauded

By Laura Anderson

New amendments to the regulations that will give homebuyers of properties with swimming pools 90 days to rectify non-compliant swimming pool barriers are a sensible approach, according to the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales.

Minister for Local Government Paul Toole announced on Friday (11 March, 2016) the new regulations applying to the sale of properties with swimming pools to take effect from 29 April 2016.

“From 29 April 2016, vendors will need to attach to the contract of sale a Certificate of Compliance, or a Certificate of Non-Compliance outlining what needs to be fixed,” REINSW President John Cunningham said.

​“This is a sensible approach given the ongoing issues and delays over the last three years in regard to these important regulations.

“It is great to see that amendments have been made to allow these regulations the ability to be successfully implemented and help make our backyards safer,” Mr Cunningham said.

As part of the regulations, from 29 April 2016 every new tenancy agreement must have a compliance certificate if the property has a swimming pool.
