Bill of sale in Labelle, Florida



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 current owner of the vehicle is the first one to complete this paper and sign it, before the buyer.

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

Benefits for the Seller of the Vehicle

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.

Benefits for Buyers

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, you should notify the new acquisition to the tax collector’s office. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will receive your notification and proceed to cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under your name. Please keep in mind that you will have to pay a sales tax payment. After purchasing the vehicle, you will have only 30 days to register the vehicle under your name. After this period of time, you will be punished with a penalty fee due to the late transfer.
