CHICAGO — A homeowner has filed a class action lawsuit against Bank of America, alleging she was assessed and forced to pay unauthorized inspection fees on a mortgaged property. 

Lead plaintiff Gloria Tirado filed a complaint June 28 in Cook County Circuit Court, saying the bank allegedly failed to notify her of the inspections or to contact her to determine whether the property was occupied, and continued to charge fees for inspection even after learning that her property was occupied.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek actual damages, restitution, return of amounts wrongfully received, removal of outstanding charges for unauthorized inspection fees, interest, punitive damages, attorney's fees and costs. 

She is represented by Arthur Czaja of The Law Offices Of Arthur C. Czaja and Assoc. in Niles and Jeffrey Berman and Patrick Solberg of Anderson + Wanca in Rolling Meadows.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 18-CH-08116
