Lorain City Council could edge closer to abandoning the point of sale inspection process for single-family homes and duplexes.

On Sept. 28, Council’s Building & Lands Committee discussed waiving an inspection fee for a county-owned house that was restored, something the full Council will consider.

Lorain City Council’s Building & Lands Committee met Sept. 28, 2020, for discussion on waiving a fee for a county-owned house that was restored in the city. Ward 4 Councilman Greg Argenti suggested the possibility of eliminating Lorain’s point of sale home inspection process because it appears it is not improving home values in the city.

The deliberations expanded to include the possibility of abandoning the point of sale process altogether.

The city began using home inspections in 2014 in hopes of improving the physical conditions and boosting the values of Lorain’s housing stock.
