displacement of a retaining boundary wall - liability

Subject: displacement of a retaining boundary wall - liability

Whatever the ownership of a retaining boundary wall, am I right in thinking
that the landowner on the upper side must remedy any trespass caused by an
outward displacement of the wall?

 

But what if the wall is owned by the lower landowner, who has allowed the
wall to fall into disrepair, without any foreseeable predisposing factor
(such as a boundary tree on the upper land) increasing the lateral thrust on
the wall?
