I'm surprised your neighbour is not agitating for you to control the ivy. Get up a ladder and cut it back, or get someone else to do it. Do not trim it all over, remove large chunks of it by cutting out branches. Not hedge trimmers; secateurs, and a saw are needed.
Haven for the birds and the bees is one thing; a plant out of control is another.
Better you tackle it now, than receive a solicitor's letter later.
