WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW WHEN LEASING A PROPERTY WITH A POOL?

A pool within a rental property only accessible to residents of that dwelling, the standard deems it a non-shared pool. The owner of a non-shared pool must ensure a pool safety certificate is in effect for the pool. The owner needs to have this completed prior to the lease or renewal of the leased property. If your pool safety inspector inspects a pool which is non-compliant, they will issue a Form 26. The Form 26 is a Pool Safety Non-Conformity Notice. A Form 26 advises the pool owner the details of non-conformity and the work needed to make it comply. The pool owner needs to re-engage the same inspector within 3 months of the issued form 26, to re-inspect the pool.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW WHEN SELLING A PROPERTY WITH A POOL?

If a pool safety certificate is in effect, the seller must give the buyer a copy of the certificate before settlement. . If a pool safety certificate is not in effect before settlement, the seller must give the buyer a Form 36 . The form must state the settlement date. This form advises that there is no pool safety certificate in effect. The Form 36 is to help prospective buyers make a more informed decision about purchasing the property.
