CHICAGO – A Chicago couple alleges the previous owner of their home knew the property had flooding issues and did not disclose it before the sale.

Monika Cypcarz and Roman Cypcarz filed a complaint on July 14 in Cook County Circuit Court against Leslie A. Senese alleging fraud, breach of contract and violation of the Residential Real Property Disclosure Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they purchased a Chicago property from the defendant and that defendant disclosed on the property report that it was not prone to flooding or leaking. The plaintiffs hold Senese responsible because they claim the property does flood during periods of rain and that they have incurred more than $21,000 to prevent it. They claim the property is worth less because of the flooding issues.

The plaintiffs seek judgment against the defendant for damages in an amount of more than $30,000 plus court costs and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Kevin B. Salam of The Law Offices of Kevin Salam in Chicago.
