    Not necessarily. You could do the following to help protect yourself:

    - see if it is currently indexed. site:www.domain.com. If it's been expired long enough, it may have fallen off the index.
    - look at the backlinks being sent to the site. If the links look like they could potentially trigger a penalty, don't buy it. Look for things like over optimization (too much anchor text), links that aren't relevant, spammy links, etc.
