If you are selling your vehicle to a private party, you will need to provide the buyer with a Bill of Sale. A Bill of Sale gives the buyer documentation of the sale while providing the seller with a receipt for the transaction.
You may use the Bill of Sale from the Iowa State County Treasurer's Association, or you may write up your own. Generally, a bill of sale includes the following information:
- The seller's full name
- The signature of seller
- The buyer's full name
- The date of the sale
- The purchase price
- The make of the vehicle
- The year of the vehicle
- The vehicle identification number (VIN)
Remember that the person who signs the Bill of Sale should be the legal owner of the vehicle. If a married couple owns a car or truck, but only the husband has his name on the title, he should be the one to sign the Bill of Sale.
