Bill of Sale

When selling or buying a vehicle, you must be familiarized with the paperwork you must go through when doing the transaction, there are a lot of forms you must complete correctly. This last couple of years left some evidence of the most common incidents when selling or buying a vehicle. There are a lot of intentional or unintentional mistakes that can lead you to fraud or theft. One simple mistake can lead you to lose money and waste your 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.

The “Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home, Off-Highway Vehicle or Vessel”, can be downloaded from the DHSMV site. This paper is a very good backup to avoid any future possible problems.

Purpose of the form

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both parts, as it protects the Seller and the Buyer. This paper serves as a proof of the transaction made and the transfer of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

At the moment of the sale, 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.

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.

What are the Benefits for the Seller part?

The Bill of Sale form protects you as the seller of the vehicle in any case, for example: if any infraction or new ticket arrives to you after you sold the vehicle, you will have no responsibility towards those infractions. This form works as proof of non responsibility over the sold 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.

Benefits for the Buyer of the Vehicle

The Bill of Sale also protects the buyer of the vehicle after the purchase and from that date on. In the case any infraction or old ticket of the vehicle is found at the time the vehicle was the responsibility of the previous owner, the Bill of Sale will prove that the responsibility over the vehicle at that time was over the previous owner.

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.
