Bank of America Logo and Name

Buyers used to have to make a 20% down payment on a home for banks and other lenders to feel secure in giving them a mortgage. Lenders preferred to risk only 75%-80% of the value of a property and to want buyers to risk significant equity as well. However, as home prices have gone up, lenders have devised another solution—private mortgage insurance, or PMI. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that Bank of America, NA has taken advantage of PMI and refused to stop billing borrowers even when the PMI is no longer needed.
