European small claims proceedure

Hi everyone,

has anyone had any experience with using the european small claims proceedure? i understand from my research so far that it is for small claims (2000 euros or under) and that it can be used for "disputes that are cross border ". it seems to be complicated and difficult to find out more details about . i wish to take an ex (british) landlord to court. they were living in the UK and now live in france.
