I'd be very careful unless you have iron clad proof of intent to defraud.

You'd hope a surveyor would find major seaworthiness issues but don't expect them to find all the small hidden issues.

If you have rust on top of the tank, the sealant around the fuel inlet has deteriorated. Water runs down the filler hose and pools on top of tank. At a minimum, you'll need to re-bed the fuel filler.
