Shared wall…who pays?

“My neighbor has gutted their house and removed a kitchen add-on and the room above it. Now on my property, where we had a shared wall, my insulation and dry wall is exposed and covered with a tarp. Part of the roof that we shared has been cut away exposing wood. We discovered the floor joist under their demolished kitchen also run under my kitchen. The joist are still there but need to be cut away on their property. They have asked me to share the cost in stabilizing my kitchen once the joist are cut. When their kitchen walls were removed we could see my stove vent extends into their property about three inches. They want this removed at my cost. This is the original vent from when I purchased this house 20 years ago. I don’t have the time or money to be part of their re-hab. What are my options?”
