Residential Exterior Maintenance Inspections

Home » City Departments » Housing and Community Development

The City’s Property Maintenance Inspection (PMI) Program is a comprehensive exterior maintenance inspection of all residential property for compliance with the City’s Appearance Code. The inspection is conducted by a Housing Inspector in the City’s Housing and Community Development Department between the hours of 8:00a and 4:30p Monday through Friday. Letters will be mailed to property prior to inspection. The property owner does not need to be present for the inspection, but can request to be present by calling the Housing and Community Development Department at (216) 932-7800. 

If violations are found, property owners will be mailed an inspection report detailing the violations found during the inspection. Any violations found during the inspection must be corrected within the time noted on the Notice of Violation. Violations that present a health or safety risk will be given a shorter time to correct the violation. Extension requests may be granted by the Department as long as satisfactory progress is being made on correcting the violations.

**Properties with violations cited as part of the PMI Program may be eligible for a grant from the City of University Heights. See the University Heights Property Maintenance Grant Program on the Housing Resources webpage.**
