Morello cherry cordon

I have recently bought a morello cherry, on colt rootstock. I would like to train it against a North East facing wall, however the wall it would be against is the back of my neighbours kitchen wall and he would like reassurance that it will not damage the foundations. Any advice please?

    Morellos are often recommended by experts for planting up againts north facing house walls and have been for decades.    I can't see that they would still be doing that if problems had arisen.   If you buy one on a dwarfing or medium root stock it won't be invasive under or over ground.
