How it works

Council Registration for Swimming Pool Safety Fence & Barrier Inspection | Mornington Peninsula

On 1 December 2019, new laws to improve swimming pool and spa safety came into effect in Victoria. It is now mandatory for owners of land where a swimming pool or spa is located to register their pool or spa with the relevant council.

If you do not register your pool or spa within the required period of time you may face an on-the-spot fine of approximately $330.00 or a penalty of up to $1,652.20.

Once you have received from the relevant Council confirmation your swimming pool and spa has been registered you will need to then arrange an inspection of the safety barrier to determine if the barrier is compliant with the applicable barrier standard.

Dates to provide Council with a Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Compliance can be found on your registration letter.

For more information you can visit the VBA website or contact your relevant Council if your swimming pool or spa is yet to be registered to avoid any fines or penalties.

We received the report in less than 24 hours, which was detailed, honest and ultimately lead to our decision in not going ahead with a purchase.

      "I have now obtained three building reports from APBI in the past few months. The customer service has been excellent and the building inspectors (Wayne and Greg) were very thorough and honest. On all occasions, the report was received within 24 hours. The reports were comprehensive and certainly assisted us in deciding whether or not to proceed with the purchase of the property. I highly recommend prospective buyers to engage APBI for a building and pest inspection prior to their next purchase."

Their website was easy to use and all the information you need was laid out clearly. No hidden costs whatsoever. The inspector completed their inspection and the report came out the very next day. We have recommended them to other friends already."

      "They were very responsive and professional to work with. Thanks to them we identified a great deal of defects on the property. Although, I must say they missed one major defect(creaking flooring) which is tad upsetting given they found other defects which could've been missed easily. Overall, a mixed one for me."

They were very flexible with appointment date and time. David was our inspector, he arrived on time and the report was sent to us within a few hours even though it usually takes 24 hours. The report stated all the defects in detail with photos aswell. Highly recommend APBI. Thanks Zainab :-)"

      "APBI completed a building & pest inspection for us on a potential purchase. They were recommended to us and were priced well so we engaged them. I was very impressed with the turn around time and detail of the report. I even called the rep for a couple of questions of which they were more than happy to help elaborate on the report items. Would recommend their inspection services to family and friends."

      "I contacted APBI as I needed a building and pest inspection completed asap. They were able to accommodate me within a couple of days and I had the full report by the next day. Very detailed and thorough. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a pre purchase inspection."

    -  Lisa Thomas

  • 07 July 2020

      "They are responsive and flexible to attend the inspection time but I am not satisfied with detail report they are preparing. They are using system generated report with pre populated Yes/No kind of questionnaire along with standard clause of APBI and pictures taken during inspection but there is no technical details about the fault or recommendation according to VBA guidelines for builder to fix it. It doesn't add much value. I would recommend APBI to provide more description according to VBA code which can help builder to understand technical requirement and knowledge."

    -  Rachit Patel

  • 26 June 2020

      "This was my first time purchasing a property, and I was glad I went with APBI. They were affordable, and the service was quick and professional. They liaised with the agent to confirm a time and did a thorough inspection of the property! Would recommend - it was a very easy process!"

The inspector showed up on time and was very respectful. He completed a very detailed report and was available for a follow up phone conversation which was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this service."

    -  Grace Monks

  • 11 April 2020

      "Decent value, fast turn around Pre-Auction inspection. Good communication with real estate agents. Perhaps not as much detail in the "hard to reach" areas of the house as I would like, e.g. stumps under house. Also I think they missed some water damage in the garage ceiling, but nothing major."
