The original post seemed to suggest that it was the neighbour's fenceline, so obviously the neighbour could please herself, but a warning would have been nice. I don't think you can really talk about loss of house value when any plant is really only temporary. One should always have this sort of situation in mind when buying a house: could I afford to make good if the neighbours, either existing or new ones, choose to make major changes? It's the job of all of us to get on as best we can with the neighbours, but we can't expect them to run their gardens for our benefit.
I think when you've got over the shock, you'll find that a fence and some strategic planting will sort the job out.
