Next, check to see if there is a section where the seller and/or buyer can indicate the details of the property that is to be transferred. There should be sufficient room in this section to leave highly detailed information about the property and the condition it is in at the time of purchase. Keep in mind that if more than one item is encompassed within the transaction, it may be necessary to itemize or list the particular items separately. If this is the case in your situation, the bill of sale template that you choose should allow for this.
This is especially true for the buyer, as it is usually the seller who has composed the bill of sale (or hired someone else to compose it). Therefore, while both the buyer and the seller must consider the terms of the sale very carefully, it is especially important for the buyer to understand the legal considerations of the bill of sale.
The next thing to remember is that your bill of sale template must specify the financial details of the transaction. Upon viewing the form, one should easily be able to tell how much the property was sold for and when it was sold. If there is sales tax involved, this should be noted as well; moreover, the method of payment (such as cash) should be clearly indicated in the template. Any bill of sale template, free or otherwise, ought to include these elements.
If the item happens to be insurable, you may need to provide documentation to prove that you are the legal owner of an item, or that you are no longer in possession of the item. A Bill of Sale, if completed correctly, can be used as proof of ownership.
