A West Virginia general bill of sale enables a buyer and seller to record a transaction wherein the former purchases property from the latter. “Property,” in this case, doesn’t refer to real estate, but instead to any item that an individual wishes to sell. There are specialized forms below for those selling vehicles, firearms, or boats; the generic document can be used for all other sales. The parties should provide a description of the property, the purchase price, and their contact information. Obtaining a signed (and notarized) bill of sale allows either party to prove that they own or have transferred ownership of the items in question, whichever applies.
