A: You will need a boundary line survey to prove you own all or most of the wall, with the surveyor available as a witness. Then you sue the adjoining owner for trespass, tort damages and possible conversion of the stones. Hopefully you will not need a Boundary Dispute Action. All of this is expensive, but then real properties are usually very valuable. Both Titles now have clouds on them.
