Are you lucky enough to have a swimming pool in your rental property? That’s quite an asset! But did you check that you were in order?

1. Mandatory equipment

Whatever the size of your pool, whether in-ground or semi in-ground, you must install at least one of the following 4 pieces of equipment:

  • a protective barrier
  • an audible alarm system
  • a tarpaulin
  • an enclosure covering the entire pool

With this equipment, you can protect people who come to your home, and protect yourself from accidents.

2. Fraud: what are the risks?
