A Delaware general bill of sale is a document that establishes that an item has been paid for and transferred from the seller to the buyer in a private transaction. A description of the personal property being sold, its purchase price, and the sale date must be included in the completed form. By establishing the buyer’s ownership and acceptance of the item in “as is” condition, the seller cannot claim that it was stolen, and the buyer cannot demand any reimbursement. Both parties must provide their contact information and signatures. If the document requires notarization, the buyer and the seller will need to prove their identities to the notary before signing.
