Look for a connection downstream of your electric meter that leads away from your house.  Most likely this is the electric supply connection to the other house and this is the connection that should be cutout.

Isolate all your power by the meter in the evening when the neighbours can be seen to be at home with lights on.  Does this turn their lights off?  Turn off all the power users in your house.  Does the meter stop.  Leave it like this for one hour.  Has the meter moved during this hour?  Note the readings from your meter every week. Are the numbers the same as the power company put on your bill, i.e. the same actual numbers and the subtracted figures that tell you how much you have used.  Sounds painful to your pocket.
