We can’t send that kind of letter from you but we can advise you what you should do and what will ultimately happen.
The letter is going to be better coming from a local solicitor who, if this proceeds any further, you would be able to sit down with and take detailed instructions.
A solicitor will probably charge about £100 for opening the file and just sending that initial letter because of the amount of paperwork involved in opening a file.
It is imperative the you don’t write to him any more or text him or phone him or have any contact whatsoever otherwise he will start to allege even more that you are harassing him and he may go to the police. Avoid that.
This is defamation (slander is spoken, libel is written) and the solicitors letter should threaten an application to court for an injunction to stop him contacting you or making any further allegations or mentioning you in any way whatsoever and would ask the court to award damages/compensation against him in your favour and would also include an application for court and solicitors costs.
If this were to go to court, you would certainly be into a couple of thousand pounds. If he decided to defend the action those costs could rise considerably and if you lost for any reason, you would have to pay his legal costs plus your own which could be running into £10,000 or even more
Hopefully, the initial warning letter will have the desired effect
