1. Any transgression over the midpoint line of the boundary is a trespass in law and entitles you to hack away the footings if you so wish. However, I would suggest that you first, speak with your neighbour and point out that he has trespassed on your land and would he remove the footings as the constitute a trespass in law. Otherwise, you can licence the trespass by getting him to pay you some money for using some of your land for the footings. However, it was not permissible in law for him to transgress over the boundary when creating foundations for whatever he is building. This is a trespass in law and entitles you to take remedial action.
2. The key idea is that you own up to the midpoint line of the boundary. This includes the air above your land up to the midpoint line of the boundary. So this person cannot transgress the boundary at a higher point off the ground than the footings. So if this happens, it is also a trespass.
