A Kentucky bill of sale records the private sale and transfer of personal property from a seller to a buyer. A bill of sale can be used to record the sale of any item, such as furniture, collectibles, cars, boats, clothing, antiques, and firearms. The completed document acts as proof of purchase and may be used as evidence of ownership after the item has been paid for. By executing the form, the buyer accepts the item “as is” and cannot demand any kind of refund from the seller. The signed document also prevents the seller from having any claim over the property. It should be noted that in Kentucky, when a boat is purchased, the buyer must receive a bill of sale as it will enable them to register and title the vessel in their name.
