An Alabama bill of sale is a form completed by a buyer and a seller to record the transfer of ownership of a vehicle, boat, firearm, or other personal property. If used for the sale of a vehicle, it does not officially transfer ownership, but simply states that the transaction took place. The new owner of a used vehicle may require a bill of sale when registering it with the Department of Revenu. In all cases, the completed form enables both buyer and seller to obtain proof that a purchase was carried out and that the buyer now is the legal owner of the property.
