Definitely Koelreuteria. And they will do at least 50-60' when happy. Form 
looks just right for a young tree, too. 

Remains of panicles of flowers across the outside of the canopy very 
distinctive. If you look inside the seed cases, or on the ground underneath, 
you'll find 5mm shiny black seeds. 

If you want confirmation ask the owner.... There's no way they could have 
missed the golden flowers in summer. 

Definitely a tree which should be planted more widely, seems tolerant of hot, 
dry places too, which is pretty handy in the south-east.

(Assuming those are papery brown seed cases)

I have been sent this photograph today to identify tree. To me it 
looks like Paulownia but are there any other suggestions?
