Fibreglass divider

My neighbour has a new roof, they have not said how they were joining the 2 roofs, or asked any permission to move our tiles, when I looked up and asked why they had a divider installed wonky
/ top bowing towards our roof, if I could add a pic I could show you, they argued my roof tiles aren't straight, but before they removed them roof was fine, it will be the only roof I have seen without a straight line down, can they do this?

"You’re taking about a bonding tray they should have cut you’re tiles or the neighbours and the bonding tray should be flat and straight"

"Your neighbours are within their rights to have a bonding gutter between the houses when they have a new roof installed this is just standard procedure these days as people have different tiles so a bonding gutter is the only way to seal the 2 roofs together. However if you are not happy with the way it is installed you are within your rights to ask them to correct it, as these bonding gutters should run straight down the firewall between the 2 properties."

"Well number one they should of asked you if they could and number 2 it shouldn't be wonky and 3 I doubt it's your tiles because if that was the case your neighbours roof tiles would of been completely all over the shot so I think you are correct bud"

"They can't remove the tiles on your roof without asking permission first and only if you give them consent you can do so."

"The bonding strip which is a modern way of diving a new roof to an old roof or when to different size tiles are being used should be straight flat with felt fitted under both adjoining properties and both sides of the jointing strip-cut if required equally and pointed down both sides of the strip."

"It would help if you had have said what type of tiles you had on your roof, if they're a large profile tile like a Redland 49 or a pantile or something like then the roofers would have followed the line of your tiles regardless of how straight they were, if on the other hand, you have a small plane tile or a slate, then the roofers should have brought your tiles into to the fiberglass, cutting each course individually."

"Yes as long as don't cause no damage to your roof so you would have to get it checked"
