Does a bill of sale have to be notarized to be legal if it is a domain name or trade name?

Asked over 2 years ago - Baton Rouge, LA

I am looking to sell a trade name and a domain name to another business I just don't have the capital to keep the business going. Do I have to have it notarized to be legal in the State of Louisiana?

Thank you.

    Answered . To be legal it does not have to be notarized, but to transfer the trade name registration with the Secretary of State it does need to be notarized. If the trade name is registered in some other state then you'd need to contact that state's secretary of state to find out the requirements for transferring a trade name.
