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?
