Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

I see that you have already written to him threatening out legs proceedings. As such I am not convinced that you need to send a legal letter to him. I would be minded to simply bring a claim against him in the small claims court - you can do this online at - you can also claim interest at 8% per annum pursuant to s.69 of the county court act 1984. I hope that this helps. Please rate positive.
