Ohio Bill of Sale Forms

An Ohio bill of sale allows buyers and sellers to record the sale of personal property in a private transaction. Once the buyer and seller have completed the appropriate form and money has changed hands, ownership of the item is transferred from one party to the other. The bill of sale establishes when the transfer took place, what items were transferred, and how much the buyer paid in total for the items. The names, contact information, and signatures of each party must be included in the document. If the transaction involves important or valuable goods, the parties can sign the bill of sale in the presence of a notary for added legitimacy and security.
