Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
So you want to recover the money?
Does he have funds?
Obviously you can sue him at the Small Claims Court but if he doesn't have the money to pay then there is very little point. However, it is fairly cheap to sue so it would be worth doing as it may encourage him to find the money. It is the sort of sum that he would probably be able to lay hands upon if he wanted to avoid a County Court judgement
You can issue here

That is blackmail for which you would be going to prison even on a first offence.
You can't make allegations against people because you have civil disputes with them.
That doesn't mean you can use is to recover money. That is blackmail. There is no defence in saying the money is owed.
Usually 10% of the claim.
I can't say whether you will win obviously.
Satisfy the judge that you are owed the money. And indeed that it was paid. I can't say what his defence would be obviously.
I can't immediately think of a way of making it any more simple; you have to satisfy a judge that he owes you the money.
