    Personally I would ignore it, the surveyor is unlikely to pick it up. However if you start discussing with your neighbour who is clearly a jerk then there's a risk it will become a dispute which you would need to declare on the sellers pack.

    poke the ball out. then tell them is a problem for you . They are unlikely to want neighbour dispute while they are selling

    If it was between your houses and your gutter fed into it, it must be a shared downpipe, which means they cannot remove it without your permission. Tell them to put it back.

    Maybe they are thinking of taking it with them when they leave!
