But why did he lock you out if you did not owe rent?
How much was the rent.
Are you saying he is not giving any of it back?
But was there any damage to the space when you left?
Then he has no right to keep the security deposit and he had no reason to pay a bailiff and so you can sue him.
For this matter you can sue in Small Claims Court and can self-represent.
So you can send him a demand letter yourself if you prefer. Demand a full reimbursement of the funds he owes you and give him a deadline for paying you and tell him that if he fails comply you will commence legal proceedings and then will be seeking interest and your costs.
You can manage this on your own and if you need some help you can post on this site and I would be very happy to continue to assist you and can guide you through the process.
