A Colorado bill of sale is a document completed during or following the sale of personal property to establish proof of the transaction. In Colorado, the bill of sale document, once signed by all parties involved, can be used to prove one’s ownership when registering a vehicle or vessel with the state authorities. For the seller, it provides them with a signed statement that they are relinquishing ownership and liability. Depending on the nature of the property transferring ownership, the parties may choose to, or be required to, notarize their signatures to further validate the bill of sale document.
