And every day Californians risk their hard-earned money by making a major mistake with the sale.
Here’s what you need to watch out for:
#1: Failing to Comply With California Law
California has a law called the Statute of Frauds that requires a ‘writing’ for the sale of a good for $500 or more.
The law, put simply, says that a handshake or a verbal ‘agreement’ won’t stand up in court. Instead, you need a written contract — such as a bill of sale — signed by both the buyer and the seller.
#2: Not Protecting Yourself
Used things have problems. Hard drives crash, and motors don’t start. Refrigerators stop cooling, and TVs go blank.
Sell your item without a written contract, and you’re unprotected. You’re also unprotected if you sell your item with a written contract that fails to limit your liability.
#3: Using a Free Sample Bill of Sale
Do some digging, and you’ll find a free sample bill of sale online. Be very careful, however, before using that document.
Most free bills of sale are written terribly. They have confusing, outdated terms and weren’t written by legal experts. In addition, they’re not written specifically for use in California.
There’s an easy solution to the pitfalls above — use a professionally written, affordable California bill of sale.
