Property maintenance inspectors ensure that the Property Maintenance Code is properly enforced.  The code requires that all properties and structures, including both residential and commercial, are being well maintained.  The following is a list of commonly addressed items: routine lawn & shrubbery maintenance, weed control, gutters and downspouts being cleaned & securely attached, peeling and chipping paint, repair/replacement of broken concrete drives & walks, etc.  All property owners are responsible for the continual upkeep of their property.  The goal of the property maintenance inspection program is to preserve the quality of properties through proper maintenance.  


The length of time will vary depending upon the scope of the work.  However, we strive to be as efficient as possible. 
All contractors must be registered with the City of Parma Heights before a permit can be issued.
A homeowners permit means you are doing the work yourself - a contractor is not being used.
Inspections are required to make sure the job is being done correctly.
A permit is necessary to ensure the work is done correctly and in accordance with the Building Codes. Reminder: If processing a permit through the mail - please remember to include a self-addressed STAMPED envelope for us to return the permit to you. Thank you.
