If selling a property in the Bundaberg area and have a pool or spa, you need a Pool Safety Certificate before settlement. Vendors who try to take the easy option and give responsibility to the buyer, but we have seen contracts be put on hold or even terminated because no Pool Safety Certificate existed.
Buying a residential or investment property in Bundaberg, you may be asked to sign a "Form 36", which is a document that places the responsibility of the pool safety barrier on to the purchaser. Do not sign a “From 36” without first talking to a conveyancer or a solicitor; otherwise it could cost you thousands when you have to upgrade or replace the pool fencing. If you do sign a Form 36, you need to get a Pool Safety Certificate within 90 days of settlement, which will include incurring fence upgrade costs if they are necessary.
