The steps to using any bill of sale template are very easy. 1) Enter the seller’s information, 2) enter the buyer’s information, 3) enter the sales price, and 4) enter detailed information regarding the item being sold. For simple personal property this could be just a description. For property that requires a state title or registration you’ll need to record everything including the make, model, year of manufacture, and the identification number such as the VIN or Hull ID number. Once the form is completed, sign and date it but ONLY in the presence of the buyer. If the form is being notarized, do not sign it until you are in the presence of the notary.

We are required to include the following legal disclaimers:
This bill of sale templates we offer were created by a skilled and seasoned businessman, not an attorney or law firm. Most states do not have specific requirements for a bill of sale unless it involves the sale of a motor vehicle, boat, or other property that requires a title issued by the state in which the buyer lives.
We highly recommend having the bill of sale notarized if it involves a high-priced item and especially if you are not familiar with the buyer. The notary will confirm the identity of both parties so both you and the buyer are more confident concluding the sale.
