Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Under Minnesota real property law, the party who installed the wall is responsible for maintenance and repair.
This is particularly true is this instance because you gave permission for the wall to be installed on a portion of your property.
The neighbor was responsible for material choice and installation. You gave permission for him to use a portion of your property. That permission, while it can be revoked, was for his use. He is responsible for that "use". Not you.
