I have a fairly large apple tree in my garden approximately 10m from my house. It stands about 8m high.
I have started getting cracks in my back 2 rooms and patio. is it likely to be the roots and if so, should I remove the tree?

That seems a little tall for an apple tree - if its not on a dwarfing rootstock, it should be kept pruned back. That said, it doesn't sound as if the apple tree is a likely culprit, though its not impossible. If you're on clay soil, then removing a tree can cause as many problems as it solves - take advice from a building surveyor.
