Full Question:

Is a hand written and signed bill of sale (by both parties) and not notarized acceptable in the court of law. Are there any states where a bill of sale is not acceptable in court unless it is notarized? In particular, will a non-notarized bill of sale be acceptable in Arizona's courts?


A bill of sale may be accepted without being notarized or witnessed. The better practice is to have two witnesses for each signature or it be notarized but it will probably be accepted.
