Neighbor’s Intrusive Ivy:

My neighbor has ivy growing up the side of my row house. I understand that I have the right to cut down the ivy (correct me if I’m wrong), the problem is 1) I need to get into the neighbor’s yard to do so and 2) there is damage to the paint and the pointing between the bricks caused by the Ivy that now needs repairs. As you can imagine, the neighbor is turning a deaf ear to the problem. Any advice (other than contacting a lawyer)? Can I go to small claims court?
