There is typically a metal flashing used to cap the brickwork and cavity. This prevents water entering the brickwork and cavity.
Below is a link showing the detail (apologies it's small).

It's also possible to have the guttering overhang the brickwork however you will need to consider your setbacks ect.
Hope this helps!

Yes, it is on the boundary wall. Would there be possible maintenance issues if water overflows and goes into wall cavities?? Would you know how to prevent this issue?
Thanks for your help.
You can also have a box gutter which sits on the inside but a lot of builders dont like them as if they arent installed correctly they tend to overflow and leak, but if installed correctly they are fantastic
