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

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

That will do nicely, thanks figet, its leyllandi.

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!
