Is it legal to put a camera on *your* property without your permission? I would guess no. But you said the camera is not on your property, so it is a matter between your neighbours.

I think what you want to ask is whether it is legal for your neighbour to install a surveillance camera which looks at your house. In that case, this article may help you:

Installation of CCTV at home, just like in a business needs to be done in a way that is compliant with the law. The installation of any CCTV system is goverened by a number of pieces of legislation but the most relevant is the General Data Protection Regulations introduced throughout Europe on May 25th 2018. There are also some other bits and pieces such as Human Rights laws relating to a right to privacy etc, but GDPR is the big one.

Data Protection Commission have published guidance on domestic CCTV use, in most cases GDPR does not apply, but monitoring of public spaces will bring it into play.
