There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Has he filed a defence please?
Ok - this wont make any difference at trial.
If anything it would only be an issue if costs arises.
But even then I assume it is a small claim
So no - in reality it makes no difference

claim is for £13,500 and I need to return N181and so I presume I say 'no' ref having complied with the pre-action protocol and explain what I have done leading up to filing the claim?
Yes that is fine.
Your claim would not be quashed for not following protocol.
Does that help?
very much, thankyou
