  1. Cracking is mainly inside but a thin crack appearing along the level of the damp course.
  2. I had hoped my pics showed up but not sure they have, sorry new to all of this! Moved into property 12 years ago, garden planted by a landscape gardener. Tree with pink blossom is close to corner edge of house but has grown over the years so that it is almost as tall as the house now. Trunk is about 3m from house. Patio slabs have become uneven over the past 18 months. Cracks have appeared on ground floor around ceiling/wall join and in upstairs bedrooms around windows, seems to have increased over past 4 months!
  3. Help! I have a tree (not sure which poss hawthorn) which is planted very close to the house (approx 3 to 4m). We believe that this may be the cause of cracking to one corner of the house and lifted paving stones on the patio. We need advice/action as to whether this is indeed the cause of the problems and how this can be can be remedied. I don't want to get a tree surgeon just to chop it down but have had no reply from numbers/emails contacted through the Arboricultural Association. Any advice on who would be best to contact? We are based in Claygate , Surrey. Many thanks in advance. Siobhan
