A Montana motor vehicle bill of sale (Form MV24) documents the details of a vehicle transfer in Montana between a private buyer and seller. It outlines the terms of the transaction, including the agreed-upon purchase price, the condition of the vehicle, and any additional terms negotiated and mutually accepted by both parties.
Both buyer and seller should sign the bill of sale before a notary public.
