Assuming that you are staying in the house if you are to want the
maximum amount of money back from EDF, you need to wait for 12 months.
I will explain why
What you can then do is look at the next 12 months readings based
upon 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 five
years so you would need to factor in those price increases so there would be
some maths to do.
But leaving the price increases out it would simply be a case of
looking at the 12 months usage from the correct meter readings and applying
that to the previous five years and asking them for the excess back and if they
don't refund it, issuing Small Claims Court proceedings against them.
As I said, the price of energy has gone up in the last five years
so you are probably entitled to more than that because the energy would have
been a lot cheaper the first year you were there and so on until it reached its
I don't think that you are going to get the maximum refund out of
this unless you have something to compare with
Does that answer the question? Can I assist
further or answer any specific queries?

PS. I use voice type, voice recognition typing because I only
type with two fingers and it would take me ages. Sometimes, a computer does not

sometimes they slip through. I apologise therefore if anything doesn't make
