In 2003, Berea City Council passed legislation requiring that an exterior point of sale inspection is performed on all one, two and three family residential properties in the City of Berea prior to title transfer. This legislation was passed to help maintain property values in the City and ensure that buyers acquire properties with full knowledge of any exterior property violations.
