Lead Poisoning Laws


  • City of Cleveland’s lead hazard control ordinance (No. 1027-04) incorporates provisions from the Ohio lead law (HB 248), establishes a lead hazard disclosure requirement based on the Federal requirement, and declares lead hazards a public nuisance. In addition, the ordinance creates a voluntary program for landlords to obtain Certificates of Lead Maintenance and Lead-Free Status, which provide a liability defense in case of a lead poisoning lawsuit. Key Provisions from the Alliance for Healthy Homes.
