When you buy or sell a vehicle, you’ll need a Bill of Sale. This serves as a legal receipt from the buyer to the seller documenting both the change in ownership and the purchase price. But just only a Bill of Sale is not valid to transfer ownership. An odometer reading and the title are required to transfer ownership, and the lack of this document could delay the registration of your new motor vehicle.
The following information should generally appear on the Alaska Bill of Sale Form:
– Name of the seller; if it’s a dealer, then seller must be the licensed dealer name.
– Complete address of the seller.
– Name of the buyer.
– Complete address of the buyer.
– Complete vehicle description, including Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), make, model, year, series number and body type.
– Vehicle odometer reading at the time of sale.
– Date of sale.
– Signature of the seller or of the authorized representative.
– Notary public seal identifying the seller and his signature if necessary.
