    I am currently listing a home in Victoria and my wife has created our own section 32 document as required in the sale offer (no offers yet) and we have prepared a sample for any interested parties awaiting documents and certificates to arrive to complete it (we currently have scanned copies in the doc) and so this is a facsimile awaiting firm offers when it will be finalised to the finished item.

    Tonight there have been 2 separate friends that suggest they know all about sales of property and section 32 docs and they both have suggested that any section 32 document and accompanying information is only acceptable in a sale for 10 days and will have to be recreated each ten days from us setting one out and both also suggest we need to register the documents using a solicitor or lawyer and that will need to be undertaken with somebody possibly being the land titles office.

    I could understand the buyer needing to protect their interests by registering their position in a contract of sale but what are these so-called experts suggesting as to us registering certificates as a seller. Under Property Law, who would register this if we were the legal representatives representing ourselves and why would we need register docs already held by the land titles office? Surely the information we have been given is for sellers and not buyer?

    Can someone please clarify what they are on about, please?
