"Generic Bill of Sale" - Georgia (United States)

What Is a Georgia Generic Bill of Sale?

A Georgia Generic Bill of Sale is a legal document recording the transfer of ownership of various assets from the seller to the buyer, and an agreement between different parties for the sale of goods. Traditionally, this document is used for any type of personal property that can be sold. You can build your own form with the help of our customizable online template or download a ready-made one below.

The state of Georgia has released two specific forms that pertain to the sale of motor vehicles and vessels. You should note that a government-issued Georgia Bill of Sale does not exist so a template can be modified to suit a particular transaction and used for any personal items.

It is highly recommended to have a sales record since it offers legal protection to both parties, proving that a transaction took place, in the event of a possible dispute in the future. This document and official registration of the purchased item (except for motor vehicles and boats) is enough to serve as proof you own the property from now on.

Does a Bill of Sale Have to be Notarized in Georgia?

A Bill of Sale does require notarization in Georgia. You can draft this document and complete it in its entirety except you cannot sign it without a notary public. Both parties, or their legal representatives, have to appear before a notary public in order to be identified, and only then, can the signatures be applied.

Do You Need a Bill of Sale to Transfer Title in Georgia?

A Bill of Sale is of particular importance with regard to expensive items, for example, real estate. This document should contain the following information:

  1. Personal details of the parties. Write down the names, addresses, and driver's license numbers of the seller and the buyer;
  2. Property description. List the characteristics of the item being sold, including its serial number;
  3. Purchase price. Provide information about the amount of money paid, the date, the location, and the method of payment;
  4. Seller's disclosure. This clause is optional and can be included in the property description. Basically, the owner of the property has to inform the buyer of any defects and faults that already exist. Otherwise, the property is purchased "as is" - without any special conditions or guarantees;
  5. Signatures. This section can only be completed in the presence of a notary public.
