How Do I Write an Oregon Bill of Sale?

An Oregon bill of sale includes certain information about both the buyer and the seller:

  • The date the bill of sale is created
  • Certain information about the item being sold, including a disclosure about whether the item is being sold as-is
  • The amount of money the item was sold for
  • The signatures of the involved parties

Oregon has no legal requirement to have the bill of sale notarized. The bill of sale can be written in plain English. There’s no need to use legal jargon or archaic terms.
