In both cases the following will need to be done: The pool will need to be emptied, the affected area will need to have an underground locate to assure no utilities are in place, a permit will need to be in place for the demolition and in some markets a plumbing disconnect will be requires.
The decision to abandon vs. exhume is based on the comfort of the customer and the planned usage of the area after the demolition is completed.
In all cases the home owner will be required to disclose the existence of a pool to potential buyers even though this is of public record. If you have elected to use the effected property for expansion of your home or any use that requires the placement of footers you would probably want to consider the exhuming process, general usage usually lends more to an abandonment.
If you are building on this area it’s critical that you get your general contractor involved in this decision prior to your committing to a format of removal.
