An Oregon general bill of sale acts as proof that a buyer provided payment to a seller in order to acquire ownership of their personal property. It demonstrates that the buyer is the rightful possessor, offering them protection if the seller claims the transaction never took place. This standard, generic bill of sale is suitable for a variety of transactions, such as those involving furniture, musical instruments, pets, bicycles, tools, and other items of value. If transferring ownership of a motor vehicle, boat, or firearm, sellers must instead use the government-issued bill of sale documents presented below.
