A Tennessee bill of sale is used to document a transaction in which ownership of a seller’s personal property is transferred to a buyer. The form acts as a sales receipt, identifying the date of ownership, purchase price, location, item type, and the parties’ names and contact information. These transaction details must be verified by the buyer and seller and validated with their signatures. While not required in most situations, a motor vehicle bill of sale may need to be notarized, such as when the certificate of title is held by a lienholder or when registering an untitled, foreign vehicle.
