Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.
In view of your suspicion you will need to obtain a report from a drain specialist to confirm the cause of this issue and the costs to rectify it. Assuming the report supports your suspicion then I suggest you disclose the report to the neighbour and request they foot the bill given there is argument that through the neighbour's negligence you have suffering this loss.
Do you understand what I have stated so far if yes I will proceed to discuss the next step?
If the nuisance emants from his property and you don't want to ruin the relationship you can perhaps offer to split the bill as a gesture of good will. However if the issue is not what you think it is then you will have to foot the bill unless the report points the finger at someone else.
I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
