Hi, thank you for your question. Were there any deeds of trust, formal agreements or intentions that any contributions he made would raise a share of the properties?
Thanks for confirming. As you are not married, there are no formal agreements and the properties are in your sole name he is not legally entitled to any of your property. However, he is able to proceed to court to obtain a share of property if he is able to prove that there was an intention that his £500 was intended to create a share of the property. It will be an uphill struggle for him to do this if there are no records of agreements.

He should not be able to register the charge on your property unless there is a court order. Depending on what the charge is for it may delay or prevent you selling the property.
It would be helpful to find out under what grounds he thinks he has an interest however, he should not be able to register a charge or restriction on the title without a court order or reasonable cause.
Thanks - you have stated that the alert states the application is lodged therefore the Land Registry will process the application that has been submitted, which is likely a caution on the title.
