In the news today an article close to my heart, not only as an elected member of council but as an independant building inspector. As I conduct pre-purchase inspections I would say 80% of pools do not comply and that is a frightening statistic.

The beauty is once I have reported this the Vendor MUST make it compliant before the sale/purchase can be completed.

I have had arguments however that it has been checked by (their) council and certified as compliant. That is not so good.

Read the article.

I trust the Government will consult my organisation, the Association of Building Consultants for input into their review.
