What is an Oklahoma Bill of Sale?

An Oklahoma bill of sale is recognized as a legal document acknowledging that a buyer compensated a seller in exchange for ownership of property.

By providing personal details, the buyer and seller permit each other, state offices, or other government-related officials to contact them after the transaction. This confirmation might be necessary to ensure the sale legally transpired or for another similar reason.

Most often, residents use a bill of sale to transfer ownership of a vessel, gun, car, or another generic item. However, in some cases, an individual uses a document specific to the item they are selling. For instance, if a buyer purchases a kitten from a breeder, it is better to use a cat bill of sale form. Similarly, it is best to use the individualized form when purchasing or selling personal property like a jet ski, recreational vehicles, lawnmower, or any other comparable item.

Registration Forms: Trailers

Oklahoma residents who only use their trailer privately do not need to register or title it. A “private use trailer” is defined as an unpowered carrying platform towed by a motorized vehicle. It often holds small vehicles, bicycles, livestock, and other goods. Although the state does not require registration, the owner can apply for it to obtain a trailer license plate. Commercial trailer laws differ as the state requires them to have an active registration and title.
