A Pennsylvania general bill of sale is a receipt given to buyers after acquiring a seller’s personal property in a private transaction. This particular form is an all-purpose, generic document that is fit for the sale of any property. Its purpose is to establish evidence of ownership, report the financial terms of the sale, and identify the buyer and seller. Each party must include their contact information and sign the document to validate the purchase. Once the transaction is complete, the buyer will be the rightful owner of the purchased item, and the seller will be freed from liability.
