Id suggest £280 - £290 is a good second hand price.

Be VERY careful buying used higher end AMD cards right now. Miners tend to beat the crap out of the cards and then will dump them on ebay. Personally I will not buy a used AMD card during this mess.

Not completely. It really depends who's owned it - if they are using them properly (many miners do) then the cards should last for years mining steadily. There are some people who use them with overvolts and such, but if it's a good price and it works I'd say go for it because chances are better that it's been taken care of, IMO.

The mad rush to mining has not been mostly by people that know what they are doing. I think presuming most cards are taken care of is a bit naive. I am not going to say there are not miners out there that are not skilled and have not made sure the hardware is well taken care of but I am betting they are not the norm or the majority.

As for the warranty, unless the warranty is transferrable and most are not, then it is meaningless.

All I know is if I am going to buy a high end card I am not going to bargain basement it, especially from someone I have not clue about. Not in this environment of basically hardware abuse.
