Oregon has less strict regulations for firearm buying and selling. However, having a gun bill of sale is crucial to keep watch on firearm transactions. Oregon residents are not required to obtain permits to purchase a firearm, as the gun laws within the state do not require it. Although there is no state gun registry, the purchase transaction records are monitored and kept for five years.

If the state of Oregon does not provide a specific form for the property you want to sell or obtain, you can use a general bill of sale. In this case, the document functions as a security measure both for the seller and buyer.

In Oregon, you can use the official vehicle bill of sale template while conducting vehicle transaction. It is required for a buyer to apply for a title within 30 days after the purchase, and the vehicle bill of sale will be one of the documents that indicate the title transfer. The seller will have to provide a secure odometer disclosure form before transferring the vehicle ownership. If you don’t know how to fill out this form, below are simple instructions to follow.
Step 1. Provide vehicle description
In the first section, you need to describe the vehicle that is being sold, giving all crucial details, such as:
Step 2. Indicate the buyer’s identity
Type in or write in all capital letters the buyer’s full name. Next, provide the date of purchase and the buyer’s contact info (their mailing or physical address).
Step 3. Sign the document
Lastly, the seller must sign the document to confirm their willingness to release their rights on the vehicle. If there is more than one seller, both of them must type their name and sign the document. Also, it is necessary to provide the seller’s address and the date when the transaction happened.
There is no hard rule regarding the notarization of Oregon’s motor vehicle bill of sale. Any party can demand the notary public if they want to protect themselves against potential issues.
An Oregon driver isn’t always required to use bills of sale when selling or purchasing a motor vehicle. A title release may be used to register or title a car instead of a motor vehicle bill of sale. However, it’s advised to sign the bill whenever possible since this document can resolve current and prevent future legal disputes. Bills of sale can also be used when filling in one’s tax statements or qualifying for a loan.
Oregon requires registering all types of vehicles that can be driven on public roads. A seller is obliged to contact the Oregon DMV office within 10 days from the transaction date.
It’s worth noting that Motor Vehicle Services Division offices of Oregon are currently closed for visitors; all applications must be mailed to the DMV’s official address. The titling procedure must be completed within 30 days from the date of purchase or obtaining residency in Oregon. A list of papers required for registration is subject to changes (depending on the type and origin of the vehicle). Here are the documents that you need to provide to the Oregon DMV in any case:
More documentation is required if you are registering an out-of-state car. For new cars without a title, you must also provide a Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin, a vehicle identity inspection certificate, and the most recent out-of-state registration. A vehicle identity card can be obtained from the local DMV office, an authorized car dealer, or an emissions testing facility.
Registration fees may vary depending on the vehicle type you want to register. If you own a private car, the title charge is $98 for cars manufactured in 1999 or earlier and $103 for cars manufactured in 2000 or later. The cost is $187 if you need a registration for an electric car. It costs $24.50 to register a car that you purchased but does not have Oregon license plates.
