You need to write to your son and set out your losses and request payment within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
If he does not provide payment then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. As the claim is for £10,000 it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

What else would you like to know Catherine?
I have said how to get the money back in a legal way, which is to issue proceedings.
If they refuse to repay you that is the ONLY legal way you can get your money back
