West Virginia Bill of Sale Forms

A West Virginia bill of sale documents a transaction in which a seller transfers ownership of their personal property to a buyer. The form includes the sales price, transaction date, a description of the purchased item, and the personal information of the buyer(s) and the seller(s). The West Virginia DMV has created a bill of sale to record the transfer of motor vehicles, trailers, and boats. For these transactions, the form must also contain an odometer reading (vehicles only), manufacturing details, and a notary public’s certificate of authentication. In all circumstances, the parties must inscribe their signatures to complete the document and finalize the transaction.
