What is an Idaho Bill of Sale?
An Idaho bill of sale educates third parties on the terms and conditions of a transaction between two (2) individuals. It indicates that the buyer and seller discussed the deal’s complexities and formalized an arrangement to transfer an item. Once signed, the seller cannot accuse the buyer of stealing the item. In turn, the buyer cannot blame the seller for any damages after the sale.
However, the buyer can file a claim under one (1) condition: the seller knew about a mechanical or physical issue with the object before the sale and did not warn the buyer. Most often, these types of lawsuits occur if the item causes damage to property and/or injury or death to others.
In this situation, the court refers to repair orders or statements from dealerships or mechanics pre-sale. These forms often provide information about the recommended work or issues. Sometimes the seller genuinely does not know of the damages, and the state cannot deem them liable because they did not intentionally leave out the details to cause harm.
