Bill of sale in Blountstown, Florida



Bill of Sale

Everyone is familiarized with the paperwork one must go through when purchasing a new vehicle, there are a lot of forms to comply. During the last couple of years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a vehicle. Fraud, theft or simply mistakes are around the corner, and have led people to lose more money and waste their time trying to fix things up.

In Florida, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommend that, at the moment of buying or selling your vehicle, the owner and the buyer protect themselves by completing the Bill of Sale Document. This form is not legally required by the DMV officers, and in any case it is a replacement of the Title transfer, but this document works as a backup form. The Bill of Sale protects both parts of the transaction: The Buyer and the Seller.

Its official name is “Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home, Off-Highway Vehicle or Vessel”. This document can be downloaded from the official DHSMV website. This form is a very good backup to avoid you any possible problems in the future.

What is the purpose of this paper?

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both of the parts. It protects the Seller and the Buyer during a certain period of time. This paper works as a proof of the transaction made and the change of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

It is necessary that the actual owner of the vehicle is the first one to fill up this paper and sign it, before the buyer at the moment of the sale.

To complete the form correctly, the seller must include the Vehicle details, the Certificate of title number, the current kilometer the vehicle has made, the personal information of both parts, the price of the vehicle and the current date.

Benefits for Sellers

The Bill of Sale form protects the seller of the vehicle in any case where any infraction or new ticket arrives from the authorities and once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It works as a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle.

Once the transaction has been completed, the seller should notify the tax collector’s office, to let them know about the sale. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and wait for the buyer’s notification to register the vehicle under the new owner’s name.

What are the Benefits for the Buyer part?

The Bill of Sale also protects the buyer of the vehicle in case there is any infraction or ticket of the vehicle from the previous owner. It is a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle from the date of purchase backwards.

Once the transaction has been completed, the Buyer should notify the new acquisition to the tax collector’s office. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle for the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under the name of its new owner. Please bear in mind that a sales tax payment will be required at this time. The new owner will only have 30 days to register the vehicle under his/her name after the sale. After this time period there will be a penalty fee due to the late transfer.
