Question 52 plate mini - when does the belt need changing?

Hi,
I'm looking at buying a 52 plate mini with 52,000 on the clock. It's mint condition, one owner but i'm wondering does it have a belt or a chain and after how many miles does it need changing? Thanks!

It has a cam chain so no cam belt to change but the auxilary belt for alternator, air con compressor, etc needs changing.....not a big job, not sure what the exact mileage/time interval is though.....its in the MINI Haynes manual or someone on here will know.
