A New Hampshire motor vehicle bill of sale is a detailed sales receipt signed by the buyer and seller of a motor vehicle that functions as a legal record of the transaction. Once completed, the form will include the names and contact information of both parties, as well as a description of the vehicle, the purchase price, and date of sale. The document acts as proof of sale for both individuals in the event that any conflict or doubt regarding the vehicle’s ownership should arise.
