When it comes to renting or selling a property, all owners will have to comply with the law and make sure that any swimming pool or spa pool is not only registered but also accordingly certified to ensure that it meets the set safety standards for New South Wales. If you are not sure if your property is registered or you do need to register your property, this can be done easily online using the government website. Once you have registered your property, it is time to make sure that it adheres to the set building codes.
Arranging an Inspection
You can get a full list of all of the guidelines for pools online, but unless you are going to carry out the work yourself, you may as well use the services of a professional company. You will want to employ the services of a company that are registered with the Building Professionals Board, who will be accredited and certified themselves, in order to be able to carry out the necessary inspections. Finding a Pool Safety Compliance & Inspection service in NSW is made easy with the use of the internet. You will be able to arrange a site inspection and be given a detailed list of things that require fixing, before arranging for your certification inspection.
Bringing it up to Code
Having the detailed list of work required will allow your contractor or tradesman to have a list of work that is required, allowing them to work through each point, ensuring it adheres to the specifications. If you do not have anyone to do the job for you, you may even find that the company that offers inspections can either carry out the work for you or they may be able to recommend a qualified and reputable tradesman or company, who can complete the work to code. As you have a full list of all of the alterations that are needed, you can also inspect all of the work that is done, double checking that it is within the given parameters. Having a full report such as this is also a good way to make sure that unscrupulous builders do not try to take advantage of you saying that more work is required than is necessary. If your property has been registered before and has also had a certificate, the work required will probably be minimal. When all of the work is complete, you can then look to arrange an inspection by a certified company so that you can gain certification.
If you have used the services of a reliable and certified inspector, as well as builder or tradesman, passing inspection should not be a problem. As long as your property is up to code, you can even get your certification within 24 hours if you need it quickly, although there would be a premium for this type of service. Once your property is certified, you should find that there are no more barriers for you to either sell or rent your property, making sure that everything adheres to the law.
