Hi thank you for your message, if you can establish the issue is from her chimney and her roof then she is responsible and you can bring legal action against her for repairs to your property, that said, you may wish to speak to her again and see if a fruitful dialogue can lead to her volunteering to pay the costs. If not then you should look to instruct a solicitor to bring a legal claim. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
Hi thank you for your message, where the actual chimney stack is on your mutual roof line there could be an argument to say that you should bare some of the burden of maintenance and costs of repairs but in my view that would not be appropriate here because the damage it seems is being caused by the use of the chimney which is not from you as you do not have the breast in your property, furthermore, the flashing is on your side so it is the neighbour that needs to pay for repairs to the flashing on her side.
