Yes, now I get correct meter reading
Assuming that you are staying in the house if you are to want themaximum amount of money back from EDF, you need to wait for 12 months.
What you can then do is look at the next 12 months readings basedupon the actual meter and compare that with the five years previously.
Then you have something to compare with.
Bear in mind the price of energy has gone up in the last fiveyears so you would need to factor in those price increases so there would besome maths to do.
But leaving the price increases out it would simply be a case oflooking at the 12 months usage from the correct meter readings and applyingthat to the previous five years and asking them for the excess back and if theydon't refund it, issuing Small Claims Court proceedings against them.
As I said, the price of energy has gone up in the last five yearsso you are probably entitled to more than that because the energy would havebeen a lot cheaper the first year you were there and so on until it reached itscurrent price.
I don't think that you are going to get the maximum refund out ofthis unless you have something to compare with
Does that answer the question? Can I assistfurther or answer any specific queries?

If I good undersood what you wrote to me, they should refund me all money from the last 5 years and they can charge me just for 1year.
But 1 year from today or from day that I make a claim(April2013)
I am sorry, no, that is not what I meant what I said was that ifyou want to get the maximum refund you need something to base your claim on.
At the moment, you have nothing and that is why I suggestedseeing how much you use in the next 12 months and in 12 months time.
Claiming the difference for each of the five years between whatyou actually paid and what you paid in this 12 month period, bearing in mindthat what you actually paid five years ago is based upon a different tariff.
You need evidence of 12 months actual usage on which to base yourclaim for the refund. You are not entitled to a full refund your only entitledto what they have overcharged you by and the only way you will know what theyhave overcharged you by is by relating that to an actual twelve-month periodwhich is why I am suggesting that you cannot reclaim with any reliability foranother 12 months
