A California bill of sale is an official document to record the sale of personal property between a buyer and seller. Commonly used for vehicle transfers, a bill of sale is required to be signed by the seller. The buyer will be required to obtain a copy from a DMV office and use the bill of sale for accounting and registration purposes.

A purchase and sale may only be enforceable if there is a written contract (bill of sale) for items of $500 or more in value (COM § 2201).
