The scourge of subsidence related damage is very real but also relatively uncommon when considered against the amount of trees that co-exist very close to properties without causing any problems.

You don't say where you live or what type of soils your property might be founded on. If you are on a clay soil there is a possibility the tree may cause problems in the future but this is by no means certain. If you are particularly concerned I would recommend you have someone come and have a look. Suitably qualified people include Arboricultural Association Registered Consultants but please remember it is very difficult to prove a negative and be aware there will be some cost involved in the preparation of a report.
