Hi Jim,
The Oak is probably about 70-80 years older than the (subsidence damaged) 
bungalow.
I was worried about recommending the Oak to be felled - before checking 
whether or not heave might occur after the expected recovery.
Cheers

 When subs has occurred the removal of the offending tree is usually 
recommended by insurers as the correcting action.
The mechanism that causes heave is different to subsidence - the reverse of 
subs is re-wetting.
I don't know the circs of your case but don't get the two confused.

Hi All,
Does anyone know a good firm who undertakes heave risk assessments?
A bungalow has subsided, a mature Oak (much older than the bungalow) growing 
a few metres away on heavy clay soil is almost certainly the main cause, but 
I need to check on the risk of heave before advising further.
Cheers
