A bill of sale, also known as a sales receipt, is a written record of a transaction between a seller and a buyer, which transfers ownership of an item from one party to another. It includes important information about the purchase such as the names of the buyer and seller, a description of the item, item price and form of payment.
A bill of sale records the sale of personal goods (such as an aircraft, a boat, horses, pets, furniture, mobile phones or any other personal goods, eg bicycles and appliances) between you and a buyer. Anyone selling or buying a personal item without a warranty or guarantee can use this bill of sale. A bill of sale records the transfer of your goods to another person. The bill of sale expressly states that the goods are 'sold as seen' so there can be no argument over the condition of the property in the future. It also states the purchase price and a description of the items.
