    I bought a car for 450.00 and bill of sale was signed by myself and seller and 2 witnesses and I was given the title signed by the selller and the local law says its not a legal sale.Is this a legal sale?

    In order for the state to recognize the sale as being legal you need to complete the paperwork required. Usually, this is a notice of transfer form. In some cases, the title will have this form attached to it. You will need to apply for a new title in your name. You can download the necessary forms at the Web site your state's motor vehicle registry. Philip Reed, Senior Consumer Advice Editor, Edmunds.com

    Other than Bill of Sale are there other forms of written receipts considered legal ?
