A South Carolina bill of sale is a proof of ownership document for personal property that was sold or traded from a seller to a buyer. It consists of the parties’ full names and addresses, their contact information, a description of the item, the dollar amount, and the date and location of the sale. If purchasing a used vehicle from a private seller, the certificate of title must convey the vehicle’s sales price and odometer reading. If it doesn’t, a bill of sale will be needed upon registration with the South Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles. Regardless of the type of item purchased, the parties must indicate their consent to the transfer of ownership by signing the document where applicable.
