Cupressocyparis leylandii 'Leighton Green' : Roots

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is doing well.
So our next door neighbour has a privacy hedge with 3 Cupressocyparis leylandii 'Leighton Green' conifers.
It has been planted probably around 2008-2009 (before we moved in). The trees are now about 8-9 meter high and are growing fast. Our concern is regarding the roots of these trees and possible damage to our foundations.
Indeed the barks are planted just 2.3m from out living room wall and given the impressive growth rate of these, we are concerned the roots might be causing damage in the future.

I have tried to look online but for some reason was unable to find anything regarding roots and possible danger to foundations.
I am hoping some of you gurus 8) might be able to help!
Attached is a photo for your reference.

Thank you in advance! O:)
