    Before, starting any niche buying an old authority domain is a good idea to get free PA, DA and PR?
    We can verify these metrics by using tools.
    But Is there any possible way by which we can check Previous Penality on a Domain

    One thing that is a dead give away is if there are spammy anchor text in the history. You can check via majestic and ticking "Use Historic Index" and check the anchor text. (its not free)

    Check here as well, while not fool-proof can show you bad domains quickly. (Free)

    If you find any Asian text or obvious PBN in the history, just avoid it.

    While domains that pass these two quick tests can still be penalized these two steps are fast and easy to eliminate obvious bad domains.
