With effect from 29 April 2016, a property cannot be leased, or a tenancy renewed, that has a swimming pool or spa unless the owner has a valid Certificate of Compliance or relevant Occupation Certificate. A copy will be provided to you by the owner, or your property manager.

To protect yourself from invalidating this certificate and to avoid receiving an on-the-spot fine of $550 from the council, please ensure no furniture, or other items, are placed near pool fencing.

These regulations also apply to temporary swimming pools or spas. Therefore, none are to be erected within the leased property.
