Definitely needs a belt change based on the time since last change and I personally would also change the pump whilst there. Otherwise if the pump goes 6-12 months down the track you have to strip it down again just to swap what you could have done when you were doing the belts. There's no point risking it. A new pump doesn't exactly add too much to the total. Definitely cheaper than having to do the job twice!
Other than that I wouldn't be too off-put by mileage alone. Take it for a test drive, see how it feels. Any creaks, squeals, wobbles, shudders etc. Just make sure that you get a good idea of how the car drives and looks and go from there based on what you think is right.
But definitely factor in the belt/pump replacement in your offer. Every pound you save on the initial outlay is money put towards getting that done!
