The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition was founded to address and prevent the issue of lead poisoning in the community. Beginning in March of 2021, the City of Cleveland's Department of Building and Housing began requiring that all residential rental units built before 1978 must have a Lead Safe Certification. With such a large portion of Cleveland homes having been built before that time period, we wanted to spread awareness on Lead Safe Certification and how this can be done. Here are the 6 Steps that the Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition put together to become certified.

1. Contact the Resource Center

Not sure where to start and need help? Call the resource center at 833.601.5323, or email at lsrc@ehw.org

2. Check your property

According to leadsafecle.org, 90% of residential rental units in the city of Cleveland were built before 1978. Your property is very likely to be one of them!

Potential lead hazards include any area with deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp), especially those places that children can chew or that get a lot of wear-and-tear, such as: windows & window sills, doors & door frames, stairs, railings, banisters, and porches.

3. Remediate any lead hazards

Contact a professional or complete the work yourself by becoming RRP certified.

4. Clean your property

Clean up any mess before receiving an inspection! All debris should be properly disposed of prior to receiving the inspection.

5. Get lead clearance

Schedule an inspection…and pass!

6. Apply for lead safety certification

Why is this important? Lead Safe Certification and the Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition work hard to prevent the community from being affected by lead poisoning. By becoming certified, rental property owners can help contribute to a safer community and help prevent illness.

Welcome to Cleveland! Progressive Urban Real Estate would like to congratulate all of those medical students who were matched to one of Cleveland's esteemed hospital systems.  For those not familiar with Match Day, it is the day that medical students across the country find out if they have been chosen for a residency and where the residency will be.  Cleveland, with its strong medical institutions, is a top spot to land.  Generally medical residents will be around for 3-5 years and start working at their selected hospitals on July 1st so between now and then it is a flurry of activity getting to know the Cleveland area and deciding where to live and whether to rent an apartment or purchase a home.  

For those medical residents coming to town, our team of experienced agents work hard to help buyers navigate the local real estate market. To assist new hospital residents with the relocation process, we put together a list of the top questions buyers should ask themselves when looking to buy in the Cleveland area.

  1. Do you want to lease or purchase?
  2. What are you looking for in a home? What are your must haves? 
  3. Are you looking for a single-family home? Duplex? Condominium?
  4. What is your max budget?
  5. What kind of loan are you planning to finance with?  
  6. Are you familiar with 0% down doctor loans?
  7. Is there a specific neighborhood you want to focus on?
