A Maryland bill of sale form is a document that relays the details of an item’s sale and transfer between two parties. The completed form will include the purchase price, transaction date, and a description of the article being sold. The buyer and the seller will also need to provide their names, addresses, contact information, and signatures for authentication. When purchasing a used vehicle or boat, buyers will need to obtain a signed bill of sale because it will be required when they apply for titling and registration. If the vehicle or boat doesn’t have a certificate of title at the time of purchase, or the certificate is incomplete, the bill of sale must be notarized.
