Default Valve tap then engine died. Whats wrong with it?

Hi all I'm looking into buying a 1 owner 2004 Verona EX that has 100k miles on it for $800. It does not run.

Owner says that it had bad valve tap for months, then one day there was a click noise and the engine shut off and wouldn't run again.

What am I going to be getting myself into? What happens on these engines that causes the valves to tap? I had a 2004 Verona LX earlier this year with 200k that had horrible valve tap but its still alive to this day under the new owner.

I also need to know if this is an interference engine. I'm hoping i will only need to replace valve springs, or in the worst case scenario a cylinder head. I'm wondering what happened that made this motor stop running?

Thank you for any advice in advice.
