Effective April 29 2014, the Swimming Pools Amendment Act 2012 comes into effect.

What do 2014 changes mean to you?

  1. It is a requirement that your pool is registered (Click here for details on registering).
  2. The pool must have a Warning Notice as defined in the Act which is clearly visible from a distance of three meters and situated near the pool.
  3. The owner must obtain a Certificate of Compliance as required by the Act on or before 29th April 2015.
  4. Once a Certificate of Compliance is obtained for the pool it must be made available to the tenant upon request.

If a property has a swimming pool as defined by the Act and is being sold:

  1. The pool should be registered. This may not be essential for the sale to proceed but can incur a penalty to the vendor.
  2. The pool should have a Warning Notice as defined in the Act. This may not be essential for the sale to proceed but can incur a penalty to the vendor.
  3. If the pool does not have a Certificate of Compliance and
    • the property is sold prior to the 29th April 2015, the Buyer should obtain a Certificate of Compliance before 29th April 2015. OR
    • the property is sold on or after the 29th April 2015, the Seller must obtain a Certificate of Compliance before the 29th April 2015 and provide the certificate to the Buyer attached to the contract of sale.
