How do you write a bill of sale?
While typing your name can count as a legal signature, a business needs to have a way to prove that the individual who typed their name actually signed the document. Without it, a business has no way to stop a signer from denying that they ever signed a contract, thus invalidating a contract in a court of law.
A bill of sale is a legal form used for documenting the transfer of ownership in personal property from one party to another. It must be signed by both parties after the seller has received full payment from the buyer.
The bill of sale can be typed or handwritten, and it doesn't need to be notarized. All you need is the vehicle identification number, purchase price and date, and buyer and seller details. If your car is newer than 15 years old, this won't work. But you should probably have a title for it anyway.
In most states, used car sales are understood to be "as is." This means the buyer understands that if something goes wrong after the car is driven away, it's entirely his or her responsibility. That means that, as a seller, you're not responsible for the car after it's sold.
Describe the condition of the vehicle.
Sellers usually sell cars “as is,” which limits the seller's liability for any problems with the car's condition. A statement that the car is sold “as is” and that the owner “makes no warranties about the condition of the car” is sufficient.
