You are encouraged to read the instructions below to fill out our bill of sale template without trouble. If your local authorities provide the official bill of sale form, you can use it in the transaction.
Step 1: Specify when the document is created
The bill of sale template begins with the section where you need to type in the document’s creation date.
Step 2: Enter the buyer’s and seller’s particulars
The following sections are for buyer’s and seller’s contact information, including:
Step 3: Define the vehicle being sold
The essential part of the document is to describe the vehicle being sold, such as:
Step 4: State the purchase price and payment method
This step involves indicating the exact date of the sale and the purchase price approved by each party. After that, you’ll need to indicate the selling method:
And after that, it’s necessary to specify how the buyer pays:
Finally, specify if the purchase price contains all applicable taxes.
Step 5: Read the miscellaneous provisions
These generally say that the buyer obtains the property in “as-is” condition and is responsible for it once the purchase is finished.
Step 6: Put your signature(s) in the appropriate fields
Usually, the signature of the purchaser isn’t required. Nonetheless, you will be more protected against legal problems if all sides sign the bill of sale form. The buyer and seller could also find someone who will attest to the deal and sign the form.
Step 7: Notarize the document
Although notarization is rarely required, it functions as an additional safeguard against legal issues.
The original bill of sale copy must be presented to the purchaser because they will need it to receive their new motor vehicle title. There are two approaches here: you need to either fill out and sign two identical bills of sale or make a duplicate for the seller to store.
New motor vehicle owners should remember that they can only operate on Virginia roads once they officially register. To accomplish this, they need to attend the local division of the Virginia DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) and present the following documents, including vehicle registration forms:
A Virginia vehicle bill of sale form differs for vehicles that have been in use for less than five years and for those that are 5+ years old. The completion of Vehicle Price Certification accompanies the sale of used vehicles over five years old. The form includes all the relevant details about the motor vehicle (make, model, body type, VIN, and color). The seller and buyer also need to specify the price and sign the document, proving that all the data about the motor vehicle and the deal are valid.
You should complete an Odometer Disclosure Statement and submit it to the Virginia DMV to register motor vehicles with no title. It contains all the vehicle information, seller certification details, odometer details, and buyer certification. The document is required for motor vehicles that are 10+ years old.
Tax calculations are made based on the relevant Virginia legislation. Since July 2016, the motor vehicle sales and use (SUT) tax is calculated at 4.15% of the vehicle’s gross sales price (minimum $75). If a motor vehicle was bought from a dealer, the dealer’s processing fee is also included in the gross sales price of the registered item. The tax fee is levied at the moment of the motor vehicle’s titling.
Owners of all-terrain and off-road motor vehicles should go through a different registration procedure. As these types of vehicles do not fall within the regular motor vehicle category, their registration requires the presentation of the VSA-17A form, odometer reading, the MCO or MSO, a dealer license number (for motorcycles), the bill of sale, and proof of address. All-terrain vehicles and off-road motorcycles do not require titling by Virginia law.
