New Jersey Bill of Sale Forms

The New Jersey bill of sale forms provides buyers and sellers a means of documenting a transaction in which an item is sold in exchange for payment or another item of similar value. In many private transactions, a bill of sale won’t be required. But when the buyer needs it to prove ownership, i.e., to register a boat or car in their name, they will often require a bill of sale. In some cases, the parties may want to sign the form in the presence of a notary public to further authenticate the transaction.
