A California general bill of sale is a document that records the transfer of personal property from a seller to a buyer. The completed form will include a description of the item being sold, its price, the transaction date, and the contact information and signatures of both parties. Witnesses and a notary may also sign the document to provide further authentification. Obtaining a signed receipt gives the buyer the ability to prove that they paid for the item and are its rightful owner.
