An Illinois general bill of sale is a sales receipt that records the private sale of personal property from a buyer to a seller. The form requires both parties to sign to affirm that the item was paid for and transferred ownership. Furthermore, in signing the form, the buyer agrees to buy the article being sold in “as is” condition, relinquishing any right to demand reimbursement. The bill of sale can be used to document the sale of any personal property, including furniture, electronics, tools, equipment, jewelry, and antiques.
