Swimming Pool Compliance Selling and Leasing

Property Law

Since our March 2014 LawAlert, we have been notified that the requirement to have a valid Certificate of Compliance or an Occupation Certificate issued in respect of a swimming pool when selling or leasing a property has been delayed by 12 months and will commence on 29 April 2015.

In the meantime, you should take this opportunity to ensure that your swimming pool complies with the safety provisions under the Swimming Pools Act 1992.

If you have not already done so, please also register your swimming pool on the Swimming Pool Register (  If you have any further enquiry please contact any member of our Property Team.
