Is there anything in writing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but I can prove the payments from my bank
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

Well you should go and see a solicitor sooner rather than later and get this agreement put into writing. The evidence to prove it will also help to assist. The other option may well be to get a charge on his property for the loan. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.

How do I go about putting a charge on the property ? and what would the costs be ?
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

A solicitor would be best to do it - you would be looking at about £750. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive
