A New York bill of sale form is executed by a seller and a buyer after they have settled the details of a private sale involving personal property. Bills of sale benefit the parties by proving ownership transferred from the seller to the buyer and by waiving the seller’s liability with regard to the property’s condition. To complete this form properly, both parties must write their name, contact information, and signature, and the seller can record a description of the property and sale price. The signatures of the parties may be observed by witnesses or a notary public for an additional degree of validity.
