Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Legally it would be quite difficult to claim any ‘overpayments’ because in reality you did not overpay but simply continued your original contract which they would have had to honour. When they took over any existing contracts would have automatically transferred over to them and they would have carried over on the same terms. Therefore, even if they did offer a different, cheaper deal, by your continued membership on your existing contract you would not have been overpaying as your old contract would have automatically continued to exist and simply transferred over. You could have sought to end that and re-join on one of their new contracts but that would have been a voluntary act on your part and legally they would not have been required to directly give you that option – you would have had to find that out for yourself.
They could of course offer to reimburse you for this but this would be a goodwill gesture on their part and to be honest you have nothing to lose by pushing for this. But if they refuse and you wish to take this further down the legal route – I would advise against it.
