Thanks for your question.
If your partner is not named as registered proprietor of the property then the position is that unless your partner has either contributed to the initial financing of the purchase of the property, or spent capital sums on improvements to the property which has increased its value or paid more in rent/expenses than she would otherwise have paid in private rented accommodation then she would not be advised to consider making a claim against the equity in the property.
I assume the phone bill/food contributions do not come anywhere near what is required in the above.
Such an application is quite expensive too.
Property you owned solely prior to the relationship remains your own. Property jointly bought during the relationship is jointly owned and should be split.
The puppy would therefore remain yours.
If the amounts he pays is to differ from the above then you may consider executing a cohabitation agreement drafted by a solicitor. This would confirm what you are to contribute but also confirm that he is not to acquire an interest in the property by virtue of his living there. It would cost around £300 +VAT, but if your situation is not to depart very far from the above then he would not be able to claim against the equity in your property.
