Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
Are you saying that the wall is fully on your property?
But is it that their property is pushing on it and damaged it?
This is a complex issue.
The wall is yours and you are responsible for it.
But the yard above is theirs and they are responsible for that. They have to take all steps necessary to ensure no part of their yard falls on yours or hurts you or your property.
So they are right, that will is not their concern. But they will have to put up their own, on their property to ensure they don't harm you.
I suggest that you simply pay a lawyer to send them a letter to that effect and threaten a lawsuit. If necessary you will sue but I am hopeful that once they get that letter they will take it to a lawyer and the lawyer will suggest that they negotiate something with you.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Then they can be told you are removing it and they will be required to put their own up on their property.
