Bonding gutter dispute

We have replaced our roof and the roofer has used a dry bonding gutter between ours and the adjoining roof. The neighbour does not like the appearance of the up-stand between the properties. We have tried to explain that this is the recommended method as mortar can cause other problems. I’m not sure how far this will go, but I was wondering whether the gutter could be moved on to our side of the divide without causing more issues.

"You can use flat bonding gutters , but in all honesty it's got nothing to do with the neighbours and they can't really do anything, this is how a job is done properly
Hope this helps

A bonding gutter refers to a detail, which weathers the vertical junction between different roof coverings. For example, between a double lapped plain tile and a single lapped large format interlocking tile. The detail can be formed using preformed polymer based products, traditional lead work or more modern lead replacement flashings. This detail is most commonly seen on semi detached and terraced properties, whereby one homeowner wants to replace their roof tiles. A bonding gutter is required to weather the junction between the existing tiles on the neighbouring properties and the new roof covering."

Yes you could move to just inside your boundary but it would mean lots of cuts and work / money
