You need to talk to an attorney specializing in real estate matters. Basically speaking, assuming the loan is legal (may be issues about that if not in writing, in some states) then he has a right to a protective interest in the house - under a deed of trust or mortgage or lien, as applicable to the situation and state.

Threatening to put a lien on the house is not a "threat" as such - but at least in some states coming by your work or harrassing you could well be illegal.

I would have to say not having this in writing was a big mistake - from your standpoint to get in writing the terms of repayment and interest and such, and from his for same reason and to protect his interest in the loan.
