HI, approx £1500 (about £8.40 a week) since 2012. We received a credit for Oct to Dec 2015 but company are now saying no further credit as we should have informed them earlier.
Under the Limitation Act 1980 you can go back SIX years. As this happened 2 years ago you are well inside time.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

Thanks, ***** ***** argument that I should have told them they were overcharging is not valid?
Thanks for your help, great service. I'm not sure how this works. I think it was deducted £28 last night when I asked my question. Do you get that? How does it work? Thanks again
Correct, their argument is not valid. Once you rate I get credited for my time. Just click the happy faces or stars. Thanks. Alex
