What can I do to get my neighbor to repair the siding on their home?

Question Details:

I purchased a 2-level row house and my neighbor has a three level house. Some siding has come off the third level and water (from rain) is coming into the joint wall, causing major damage. I cannot get my interior wall fixed until the cause of the water damage if fixed. What can I do to get my neighbor to repair the siding on his home? Can I have the siding replaced and just send him a bill?
