Bill of sale in Mayo, Florida



Florida Bill of Sale

It is known that at the time to purchase a new vehicle, there is a lot of paperwork to go through. During the last few years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a car. There have been cases of fraud, theft or simply mistakes that have led people to lose extra money and waste their time.

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 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.

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 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 protects the seller of the vehicle in case there is any infraction or new ticket once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It is 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 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.

When the transaction has been completed, the Buyer should notify the purchase to the tax collector’s office. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under the new owner’s name. Bear in mind that in this stage of the purchase it will be required to pay the sales tax. If the Vehicle Registration, under the new owner, takes more than 30 days after the sale, it will be a penalty fee due to the late transfer.
