What should I look out for when buying an ex-mobility car?

I'm thinking of buying a Peugeot Partner Tepee from a dealer, but it's an ex-mobility car. Can you advise me on this deal? It's not got any visible marks, but I'm concerned about taxing it and the service history.

If it has an electric rear wheelchair ramp then that makes it more valuable and must be disclosed as a 'modification' to your insurer.
