Default Second hand lap top history safety?

If I buy a second hand lap top in a private sale could I get into trouble if I need to take in for repair and find that the previous owner was doing something on it that he shouldn't ?

Always reformat. The laptop should have a COA on it needed for a fresh reinstall.
