You can sell your property with or without a pool safety certificate. However, if you are not providing a certificate, you must give the buyer a Form 36-notice of no pool safety certificate prior to entering a contract of sale and a completed copy of the form is required to be sent to QBCC (email@example.com) before settlement.
The buyer must get a pool safety certificate within 90 days of settlement.
