Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.
Firstly if the ivy comes from their property this is trespass and you are perfectly entitled to cut any of it down which comes onto your land. Other options include you contacting your house insurers and asking them if they will agree towrite a letter to your neighbours saying that the insurers will hold them responsible for any damage the ivy does to your property. Also under the Access to Neighbouring Lands Act, you can request permission for access for the purposes of maintenance and inspection. If they refuse, you can obtain a court order for access. You may consider retaining a contractor to inspect the wall and provide you with a quotation in respect of rectifying the damage. You may wish to consider claiming some or all of this quote from the neighbour on the above basis following a final notice from you to remove the ivy or warning of these consequences. I hope this helps. Please rate positive. Thanks
