Where to get a bill of sale form.
Customize, sign, and share your own bill of sale for motor vehicles, boats, aircrafts, and more.
A bill of sale legally transfers ownership of motor vehicles, boats, airplanes, or other personal property from one person to another. You can easily find bill of sale templates online or create custom ones with versatile document software — but whether you’re buying or selling, it’s important to know what information should be included.
What should be on a bill of sale form?
There are several bill of sale types and each serves a different purpose, depending on the specifics and the transaction location, but one of the most common is an “absolute bill of sale,” traditionally used for private motor vehicle sales. Details may differ from state to state but more often than not, each bill of sale should include at least the following:
- Contact info for the buyer and seller, including first and last names and physical addresses
- Description of the property purchased. For a motor vehicle, this may include an odometer reading and vehicle identification number (VIN).
- Purchase/sale price and taxes, if appropriate
- Transaction location and date
- Legally binding signatures or e-signatures from both buyer and seller. A notary’s signature may be required for the sale of certain items.
In general, once all parties sign the bill of sale form, the seller is freed of liability, and the buyer becomes the legal owner.
