What is an Arkansas Bill of Sale?
An Arkansas bill of sale records the agreement between two parties by outlining the terms of the ownership transfer. This form specifies the item’s condition and its value at the time of the sale. Both parties must provide an accurate valuation, even in cases where the owner gifts it to the new owner. The state may require additional forms in this scenario.
Each party involved should retain a copy of the bill of sale to maintain a transfer history. The new owner may need the document for registration purposes, proof of ownership, or when reselling the item. It is advisable to securely store the bill of sale, as obtaining a replacement can be challenging, especially if the previous owner is unreachable. Safeguarding the document also helps prevent legal issues if someone wrongfully claims the item as lost or their own by stealing the bill of sale.
