introduction

Pre-purchase pool safety inspections - giving Gold Coast property buyers peace of mind.

Are you buying a Gold Coast property without a valid pool safety certificate? A seller can sell a property without valid certification; however, they will have to give you a notice of no pool safety certificate (Form 36) before you make your offer. In this case, it is always recommended to get a pre-purchase inspection done to help you establish if any works need to be carried out on the pool barrier to ensure it’s compliance.

The benefits of getting a pre-purchase pool safety inspection done before buying the property are:

  • The pool or spa may not comply with the pool safety laws and can pose a safety risk to your young children. Our clear and easy to understand report will give you the information you need to prevent risk to your family.
  • It is the pool owners responsibility to ensure the pool complies with the pool safety standards, but if they issue a Form 36, the chances are the pool doesn’t comply and repairs are needed to get the pool safe. These repairs can amount to thousands of dollars. Knowing these costs ahead of time can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Our experienced and QBCC licensed inspectors will get your pool safety inspection done right the first time. With a fast turnaround time and friendly service, we’ll help you get the right information you need to make an educated decision before buying the property.

Pre-Purchase Pool Inspections

Make sure your new pool is safe before buying with a PoolInspec pre-purchase pool inspection.

You’ve found your dream home…and it includes a pool! You can’t wait to relax next to the pool during those sweltering summer months, and then the seller presents you with Form 36 – Notice of No Pool Safety Certificate. You’re understandably crushed, but we’re here to help you make the right decision for you and your family with our pre-purchase pool inspections.

Most sellers include Form 36 when they know their pool doesn’t comply and is going to require costly repairs, which means you could be left spending thousands of dollars bringing it up to code. Serious safety issues regarding the pool or spa in the home you are considering buying could spell danger for you and your family if not fixed as quickly as possible.

Queensland law requires that all pools meet official QBCC laws and regulations. This ensures that pools are safe for people to use. Unfortunately, Queensland has the highest rate of child drowning deaths in pools across Australia—and almost all of these heartbreaking tragedies can be avoided by making sure proper pool and spa inspections are completed and any issues highlighted are brought up to code. Our goal is to give customers peace of mind that their pool is safe to reduce the number of tragedies that occur in Queensland pools every year.

Our experienced and QBCC licensed inspectors will examine the area surrounding your pool including:

  • Pool gates
  • Pool safety fences
  • Any barriers around the pool
  • CPR signs

After completing our inspection, we will provide you with a detailed report of everything your potential new pool needs to ensure it meets the QBCC safety requirements. We don’t want you to face any unexpected costs when attempting to bring your pool up to code and we’re happy to recommend qualified and licensed contractors that we know and trust. We always want to help you make an informed decision on whether or not the home you are considering purchasing is the right financial decision for you.

Don’t risk facing unexpected, costly safety issues that will keep you from enjoying your new pool and book a pre-purchase pool inspection today.

  • Are you thinking of buying a property without a valid pool safety certificate?
