    Are you the buyer or the seller?

    Why is it necessary to change the date?

    As it proves that I purchased the vehicle during that time. The vehicle has been impounded /seized by the sheriff, as I didn't do the Vicroads transfer and know chasing up receipts /proof to re-claim my vehicle..

    And the sheriff has taken the car from you in the course of taking custody of property of the guy you bought it from because it is still registered as his?

    That's correct Tim... I have provided him insurance receipts, mechanical receipts and RWC Certificate in my name.

    And I suppose the original seller is unlikely/ unwilling to provide you with any supporting documents regarding the date?

    I believe he can, however, how do I got about it? Is just a proof of sale doc that he re-signs and dates it as 2013 or do I require a stat dec?
