This free printable Basic Bill of Sale Form can be used to transfer ownership of personal property, animals, and just about anything from one person to another. It should not be used for real estate, boats, or any type of motorized vehicle. If the item you’re selling has a serial number and/or model number, be sure to include it on the bill of sale in the property description. It is your responsibility to check with the proper authority in your state to determine if this Basic bill of sale form is all you need for the sale or purchase. Requirements vary from state to state and even from one county to another.
A bill of sale serves as a record of your sale/purchase. If you operate a business reselling personal property such as furniture or bicycles, the bill of sale will act as your sales receipt. As a personal or business owner, you might decide to resell the property at a higher price and need the document to determine your profit. If the property is later stolen, the document will also verify your ownership as well as the value of the item(s).
