As the seller, it is imperative that you verify the buyer’s identity and retain a copy of the bill of sale. Let’s say you sell a car. Two hours later the police knock on your door and inform you that the car hit a pedestrian and left the scene of the accident. You’d better hope you have a copy of the bill of sale to prove you sold that vehicle!

Some states require that a bill of sale form be notarized if it involves the sale of a car, boat, or other items that are obligated to be registered or titled with the state. Check with the local office where you will be registering the belongings to see if the bill of sale form needs to be notarized. If you are not familiar with the purchaser or seller, you should most likely have the documentation notarized.
