Loan servicing, payments, escrow account

I closed on my home loan with XXXX XXXX on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. My first mortgage payment was due XXXX XXXX, XXXX. In XX/XX/XXXX, I received a letter notifying me my loan had been sold to Dovenmuehle Mortgage. In XX/XX/XXXX, I got a letter from Dovenmuehle stating their records showed my insurance had lapsed. I checked my policy and it clearly showed I had coverage XX/XX/XXXX-XX/XX/XXXX and it was on my closing documents, which most certainly they should have. The letter stated they would buy home owners insurance and I would be responsible to pay for coverage for any period of time I was not covered. I did not respond at that time. I honestly thought it must just be a mistake.
In XX/XX/XXXX, I got a second letter from Dovenmuehle dated XXXX XXXX saying ” Final Notice ” and I must provide proof of coverage or they will buy insurance and I will be charged for ” any period during which the insurance they buy is in effect but I do not have insurance. ” So, I could see, they clearly do n’t have their ducks in a row, so I ‘d better get this straightened out. I went online XXXX XXXX to the site they listed in the letter ( XXXX ) AND mailed my Evidence of Insurance on XXXX XXXX.
As they have been shown, my policy has been in place since the closing on XXXX XXXX, XXXX and will remain in effect until XXXX XXXX, XXXX.
So, today, XX/XX/XXXX, I get a bill from Dovenmuehle for {$380.00} for the months of XXXX for the insurance they provided. And, they say it will come out of my escrow. I do n’t think I even have that in escrow, PLUS, how can they ethically charge me for it when I had it all along?? And, I sent my EOI within 6 days of the date on the second notice!!!

As a side note, I am also very unhappy XXXX XXXX could sell my loan without notifying me or giving me any option to opt out, right after closing to any company they chose to sell it to and I am the one stuck holding the bag with a terrible mortgage company. This is not the only issue I have had with Dovenmuehle. In the few short months they have owned my mortgage, I have run into additional customer service, payment, and administrative issues. I will likely have to refi with another mortgage company just to get away from this terrible company.
