What is a North Carolina Bill of Sale?
A North Carolina bill of sale delivers the various elements of an arrangement that ensued between a merchant and purchaser. Like a sales receipt, the signed bill of sale provides a formal acquisition statement.
The original owner relinquishes their authority by finalizing the record and transferring the belonging to the named buyer. As a result, they cannot claim ownership unless the purchaser officially resells the property to them.
Owners of items that require registration, such as cars and boats, must collect and submit the necessary paperwork to the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV).
