It is possible that the roots of the tree could cause problems. What kind of tree is it? Where is the tree relative to sewer lines and foundations? Is there a problem or is this just speculation? Whose tree is it? If it is your tree, cutting it is up to you not them.

Is the tree near your driveway? I have an enourmous Oak tree that my driveway curves around. It is a beautiful focal point of the lot but as it grows it is pulling up my driveway. So yes, the roots can certainly do damage.

Tree roots in sewers are just a fact of life. You might be able to identify which tree's roots are involved, but liability for roots in the sewer is not much of an issue. Granted that no trees around would mean no roots in the sewers, but there are trees around. If there are roots in a sewer line, you clear them out, and move on from there.

Hope this helps.
