What options do homeowner’s have when a bank forgets to withhold escrow during a residential refinance?

A family member is going through this situation in Pennsylvania. I imagine that the bank gave them a better interest rate based on the fact that they were going to escrow. However, the bank forgot, and is now attempting to increase their monthly payment by several hundred dollars each month. Can’t they just pay the taxes and homeowner’s insurance on their own?
