I was built by the current owner who bought it in June 2008.

I cannot enter into an attorney client relationship, this is a public forum, and all posts are available for public viewing. There is no duty of confidentiality that attaches to any posts. The information provided is not a substitute for a local attorney’s legal advice.
What if the current owner obtained written permission by the previous owner (of my house) for this wall? Would that negate my suit?
Thank you very much - you've been so helpful. Last question, does filing a suit against the neighbor and/or a formal alert to the county clerk -- stop the sale of the house even if the court ultimately upholds the easement?
Do you know of any legal actions or law suit risks if I stop the sale of the house?
I don't see anything that could boomerang around and penalize you because you have a legitimate legal conflict that you are pursuing a remedy to by taking legal action. Now if you were doing this for malicious reasons (which would be incredibly hard to prove) the seller could countersue for "tortious interference with contract".
But I don't see that as a possibility here since you have a real legal issue you are trying to resolve with the current owner.
