The law is here. See §95.11(2)(b) at that link which says the limitations period is 5 years for breach of written contract. So if the mortgage agreement requires home owner's insurance and you have not had it, for say, the past 10 years and now the lender want to force you to pay for coverage that it bought on your behalf for the past 7 years; then the lender would be limited to only going back for 5 years. It could not claim all 7 years of non-payment.
