GRAFTON — A Grafton homeowner is suing a lending company, alleging abusive loan servicing practices.
Tiara Star Hill filed a complaint Dec. 29 in Taylor Circuit Court against Beneficial West Virginia Inc. alleging failure to comply with the industry standard business practices in servicing the loan.
According to the complaint, as a result of Beneficial's unlawful actions, Hill has suffered monetary damages due to her high interest rate, inability to refinance, accrued arrearages and fear of losing her home.
The plaintiff alleges Beneficial West Virginia induced her into an exploitive loan that exceeded the market value of her home, made her sign a deed of trust with her home as the security instrument and refused to credit her payment.
Hill seeks trial by jury, declaration the loan is void and unenforceable, actual and punitive damages, attorney fees and court costs and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorneys Michael C. Nissim-Sabat and Jennifer S. Wagner of Mountain State Justice Inc. in Clarksburg.
