NSW – The BPB advises when a property is sold that has a certificate of non-compliance for the pool, the new owner may ask the certifier who carried out the original inspection to do a ‘re-inspection’ only covering the items that failed the first time. The certifier should explain to the new owner that the inspection will be a full inspection, not just a spot check. It may have been months since the first inspection, and conditions on the property may have changed.
The new owner may ask to see the certifier’s original inspection report. Keep in mind that the previous owner did not have to give this to the new owner, and only had to provide the certificate of non-compliance. The certifier’s written contract for the first inspection was with the previous owner, so a new contract will be needed with the new owner.
