  • Bill of Sale in Tennessee

    The Basics

    Although purchasing a vehicle from an individual can sometimes save you money, it can also seem a bit more complicated because you don't have a dealer taking care of everything for you. Along with all the other paperwork, you should complete a bill of sale form and have it notarized.

    Bill of Sale Specifics

    A notarized bill of sale is a legal document that shows a transfer in ownership of a vehicle and helps both the seller and purchaser avoid any confusion when trying to obtain a clear title and registration. A bill of sale includes:

    • The name, address, and signature of the previous owner
    • The name and address of the new owner
    • The year, make, and vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle
    • The date of sale
    • The signature of a notary public

    When you purchase a vehicle outright, it's important that the seller provides you with the current title, signed by both of you. You and the seller should each keep a notarized bill of sale for the transaction.
