At the heart of general practice since 1960

I'm joining a partnership. What things should I be careful about?

I'm a salaried GP at present. Started on Jan 1st. Being offered a partnership to start April 6th. It's a small practice, currently only one doctor plus me. I only have sketchy details of the partnership but it looks like all illness, holiday etc will be covered by locums at my expense. I am concerned that this whole process is somewhat rushed (I am expected to buy the surgery etc from the current partner). What things should I be careful about in this situation?
