    it should have had a bonding gutter

    to remove your rotten tile battens and correctly fit a bonding gutter is what is needed -its not a 5 minute job though and I guess needs a scaffold.

    Dont be surprised if your neighbour doesnt want to pay for a proper job, you may need to balance up the option of having a bodge done vs you sharing the cost vs a neighbour dispute......

    looks like the gutters disconnected too peeing down the brickwork not ideal.

    Really the original roofer would be responsible ultimately but that's a matter for your neighbour. Between you and next door it's down to them.
