Why Use a Bill of Sale Form in Connecticut?

A Bill of Sale (BOS) is a form that a Seller uses to document the sale or transfer of ownership of an item to a Buyer. A Bill of Sale is used to for personal property such as cars, boats, firearms, equipment and even animals, and is generally given by the Buyer to the Seller at the time of the transaction/exchange. The BOS contains information about the Seller and a detailed description of the item being sold, the purchase or trading price, whether money was paid or not, and any warranties. Both parties should fill out and retain a copy of the signed Bill of Sale as a proof of purchase and payment.

If the buyer doesn’t pay for the item immediately, it should be noted on the BOS along with the expected payment date. If an item is be given as a gift, that should be specified in the BOS. An important part of the BOS is the Seller’s Disclosure, an explanation of whether the item sold has defects or not, so that the Buyer understands the condition of the item they are buying.

A Bill of Sale Protects Both Buyer and Seller

A Bill of Sale is a legally binding document of the transaction that protects both Buyer and Seller from any future issues such as fraud, theft or mistakes. A completed BOS proves that the purchase was valid, the date of the transfer of ownership responsibility, and that the price paid is the same as the Buyer claims. Without a Bill of Sale, it can be hard to prove that an item was paid for and received, especially for cash transactions.

Connecticut Motor Vehicle BOS

A Connecticut Bill of Sale is required to sell a vehicle, vessel, All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV), snowmobile, or any type of motorized item that may be registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles, and the BOS must include the VIN number and odometer reading for the vehicle. A BOS is especially important, should anything go wrong with the vehicle that the Seller knew about, but did not inform the Buyer, and also protects the Seller in the event that the Buyer fails to register the vehicle or abandons it later on. (Note that a Bill of Sale is not a car title and does not replace a title transfer.)

The BOS should include the names and addresses of buyer and seller, description of the boat, year, make, model, the boat’s vessel number and the selling price. If the sale includes a motor or trailer, these details should also be included in the Bill of Sale.
