REMINDER: 2022 Exterior Housing Inspections

Once every five years, the City of Cleveland Heights inspects the exteriors of all owner-occupied, single-family homes. There is NO FEE for these inspections. Inspections are conducted on a street-by-street basis as part of a five-year rotation.

Properties that have had a point-of-sale inspection conducted within the preceding three years are not subject to a new exterior inspection. To help prepare for these inspections, Cleveland Heights' Division of Inspectional Services has prepared a checklist (PDF) for residents. If you have any questions, please visit our webpage or call Inspectional Services at (216) 291-5900. To find out if your street is being inspected, visit our systematic inspections webpage.
