Can I lawfully remove invasive roots coming from my neighbours garden, as long as it does not kill the actual plant they come from?

I hope the answer is yes cause I have

Yes, So long as it is not a tree with a preservation order on it.

Chop away, right back to the boundary line.

and when you've chopped away inject some root killer into the exposed ends

You can cut to the boundary line.  You do not have to consider whether it kills the tree or not.  If it does, tough!
