BILL OF SALE

Thousands of vehicles are sold in Florida every year. As a seller, there are certain things you should know before selling a vehicle, including the process to transfer the title. Most importantly you will want to protect yourself by completing a Bill of Sale, which removes your name from the vehicle so you are no longer liable for the vehicle you sold. As of July 2009, Florida law requires all sellers to file a Bill of Sale.

Lease Agreement

A copy of the lease agreement is required to identify the lessee/registrant and must include a description of the vehicle.
