Buying a car off a relative with high mileage...

Hi guys this is my first post. My mum has had a mini sat in the garage since about 2015. The engines been turned over but it's been driven a handful of times since. Passed the MOT, it's due in October but with no service history.

It's an 03 1.6 petrol with 129k on the clock. It's a dark green with the cream stripes

Does anyone know if I should expect and problems with it? Or how much I should offer for it? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this. I just want a little run around for a bit.

Thanks for any help.
