What is a Nevada Bill of Sale?
A Nevada bill of sale illustrates the business contract between a buyer and seller. It records essential information about the purchase to prove a change of possession happened.
The seller cannot claim ownership or revoke the sale once they sign the form. Generally, a bill of sale prevents miscommunication between the buyer and seller because it outlines the exact terms of the agreement. By signing, they acknowledge the information in the document and verify it as accurate.
An owner can do the following with a bill of sale:
- Use the form as proof of ownership;
- Re-sell the item;
- Exchange the personal property for something of similar value; and/or
- Gift the object to another person.
Registration Forms: Boats
Visit a local Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) Office to register the vessel.
Registration Forms: Firearms
Firearm registration and purchases to permit or own laws do not apply in Nevada. Guns transfers can occur privately without the need for a background check on the buyer. Federal firearm dealers, however, must conduct checks on clients. All sellers, regardless of being public or private, must know that the purchaser is not a criminal, does not have mental challenges, and will not use the firearm in an unethical manner. Applicants must send the required paperwork and payment to their local sheriff’s office.
Registration Forms: Vehicles
Schedule a registration appointment with a nearby DMV office.
Registration Forms: Trailers
Nevada requires the titling and registration of utility trailers, regardless of their weight class. The DMV handles all trailer-related matters.
Additional (Optional) Documents
- Certificate of Inspection and Affidavit of Trailer Construction (Form VP 223) – Owners must complete this form when having their self-built trailer inspected and given an official number.
