Just had to do some sums as Severn Trent have been over charging me for 20 years, they have made me an offer of a full refund. I've not accepted it because in the year 2000 a £100 would be worth £175 today.

I was interested to know at what point most recent as the value of our money double and that was 1996 £100 to today equals £200. But its only gone up £3 over the last year.

I say they owe me an extra 32% on my overpayments, see how that goes eh !

Go one step further and tell them you were planning to invest all the money they overcharged you in Netflix and send them a bill for £37k.

to be honest, they offered me £8k and my misses thinks thats great. My opinion is if they make a quick offer then they are hiding something, thats why l refused it. Worse case scenario is that theyve admitted it and by that they can't withhold it, so if l push it i've got the chance of more but the 8 is save. £12k my target.

How much was a season ticket down the City in 1996?

My seat is £420 in the East Stand. I bet ití was more than £210 for the equivalent back then.

I'm pretty sure it is standard practice, to ask for 8% interest on any refunds.

There are online calculators to help with finding out what this means, in terms of separate years.

How did it come to light that they'd been overcharging you?
Did you realise it or did they admit it?

What the water companies are doing is trying to scare people into buying insurance. So they find someone whos water bills are high then sowing the seed for further big bills. It back fired with them as my mates in charge of a part of STWA. I got the right advice. Turn your all you taps off and check the meter for movement, if it moves youve got a leak. Ten turn your rising main off and if the meter is still then theres no leak outside. If it turns out theres a leak outside its their responsibility and you are in for a claim.

They did it to a house l built a couple of years ago which actually gave me greif even though the main leak was there responsibility. It highlighted a very minor lear on the supply pipe that you wouldn't botherwith or take any notice, but as i'm in the NHBC l had to rip the drive up. The leak would have come to about cup full a week.
