Pre-Purchase Pool & Spa Fence Inspections
Peninsula Pool Safe has a team of VBA registered, insured, highly experienced building inspectors dedicated to our clients’ needs and pool safety. Our inspectors will ensure your pool or spa fence is compliant utilising the most practical cost effective solutions.
All swimming pools and spas on residential properties in Victoria with a depth greater than 30cm (300mm) are required to be surrounded by a compliant safety barrier (e.g. a pool fence). The barrier is required to be inspected by a suitably qualified VBA building inspector, and a certificate of compliance is required to be submitted to the council by the required date. It is an offence for an owner not to provide a certificate of compliance to the council, infringement notices for not lodging certificates of compliance by the due date will be issued by council.
There are currently 3 sets of requirements for pool/spa barriers in Victoria – these are based on when your pool or spa was constructed:
• Before 8th April 1991
• Between 8th April 1991 – 30th April 2010, and;
• After 30th April 2010
Ensuring the property you are buying, selling or leasing has a current certificate of compliance for the pool or spa eliminates the risk of possible costly delays, repairs and claims during real estate settlements.
“The REIV considers that it is more appropriate that the mandatory inspection and certification takes place prior to the sale of a property or prior to entering into a new lease for leased properties.” - REIV
When a pool or spa is on common property managed by an owners corporation, the owners corporation is responsible for arranging the registration, inspection and certification of the pool or spa barrier.
