A Nebraska bill of sale form enables the parties to a private transaction, the buyer and the seller, to record the transfer of personal property. These forms provide the parties with spaces to fill out their names and contact information, details regarding the items sold, the total sale price, and the signatures of each party. Bills of sale aren’t necessarily mandatory when conducting a private sale, but they can be used to prove ownership after the fact, or to register the property in the buyer’s name. After the purchase of motor vehicles, including boats, the buyer will most likely need to provide a bill of sale during the registration and titling process.
