An Oregon bill of sale is used to prove that a buyer provided payment to a seller in exchange for ownership of their personal property. It creates a record of the transaction, demonstrating when and where the property was acquired and to whom it belongs. If purchasing a motor vehicle from a private seller (outside of a dealership), a bill of sale is needed to report manufacturing details needed to register the vehicle in the new owner’s name. The document becomes valid once signed by the buyer and seller. While not required, notarization can further prove the authenticity of the signatures.
