Buying a property with a pool

If you are buying a property with a pool or spa that does not have a pool safety certificate in place we realize that it is important for you to know the possible cost in correcting any faults before you have committed to buying the property.  After the property has settled you must have a pool safety certificate in place within 90 days of settlement.  A Pool Safety Certificate is effective for 2 years for a non-shared pool.

We highly recommend that you don’t leave it to the last minute because if it does not comply you may run out of time to get it fixed and you may receive an infringement notice from your local government.

The Big Tick specializes in delivering exceptional customer focused care from start to finish when it comes to pre-purchase pool safety consultations. We understand the need to make the process easy to understand and as stress free as possible.

Easy to understand report

The report will detail what needs to be done to make the pool compliant. It will include a map so that you can easily identify where the problem areas are and if required we will provide a quote to rectify the issues.

Free Handyman Quotes

If you require a quote for our handyman service we are happy to provide one which is obligation free.  We pride ourselves on making the process as simple as possible for you, that is why we guarantee our handyman service will make your pool compliant.

It is important to note that a Pool Safety Certificate will not be issued for a pool safety consultation. However if you have a pool safety consultation prior to purchase we will return to inspect the property and issue a Pool Safety Certificate if compliant for the cost of a re-inspection plus certificate fee.

If the seller has had an inspection done and has been given a Nonconformity Notice you might like to ask for a copy so that you are fully aware of what needs to be done to obtain a Pool Safety Certificate prior to purchasing.
