RISK & PROPERTY
TITLE TO ANY GOODS AGREED TO BE SOLD BY THE COMPANY TO THE CUSTOMER (THE “GOODS”) SHALL NOT PASS FROM THE COMPANY TO THE CUSTOMER UNTIL ALL SUMS DUE FROM THE CUSTOMER TO THE COMPANY IN RESPECT OF THE PRICE OF THE GOODS HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL. PAYMENT SHALL TAKE PLACE WHEN THE COMPANY RECEIVES CASH OR CLEARED FUNDS IN RESPECT OF THE SUM DUE TO IT IN RESPECT OF THE GOODS. RISK IN ANY GOODS AGREED TO BE SOLD BY THE COMPANY TO THE CUSTOMER SHALL PASS TO THE CUSTOMER ON DELIVERY OF SUCH GOODS TO THE CUSTOMER OR, IF THE CUSTOMER WRONGFULLY REFUSES TO ACCEPT DELIVERY, ON TENDER OF DELIVERY. UNTIL TITLE TO ANY GOODS HAS PASSED FROM THE COMPANY TO THE CUSTOMER, THE CUSTOMER SHALL HOLD ANY SUCH GOODS WHICH HAVE BEEN DELIVERED TO IT AS THE COMPANY’S BAILEE. THE CUSTOMER SHALL ENSURE THAT THE GOODS ARE: (1) KEPT IN GOOD CONDITION; (2) STORED SEPARATELY FROM ANY OTHER GOODS IN ITS POSSESSION (WHETHER BELONGING TO IT OR ANY OTHER PERSON); (3) IDENTIFIABLE AS GOODS SUPPLIED BY THE COMPANY; AND (4) FULLY INSURED.
The Customer acknowledges that it shall take out insurance in respect of the Goods on its own behalf and as an agent for the Company. The Company may, on giving 24 hours’ notice in writing to the Customer, enter the Customer’s premises to inspect the Goods as have been delivered to the Customer by or on behalf of the Company and/or require a copy of any relevant policy of insurance.
If the Customer sells the Goods to a third party before title to the Goods has passed from the Company to the Customer, the Customer shall immediately pay into a separate account designated as the Company’s account the price paid by the third party. Until the Company has been paid in full in respect of any sums due in respect of the price of any Goods agreed to be sold to the Customer by the Company, the sums held on the Company’s account shall not be used for any purpose save for payment to the Company of such sums as are due to the Company from the Customer. The Company may, on giving 24 hours’ notice in writing to the Customer, require evidence that the Customer is maintaining a separate account pursuant to this clause and evidence of the sums held on that account.
Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer (and provided the Goods are still in existence and have not been resold) the Company shall be entitled at any time to require the Customer to deliver up the Goods to the Company and if the Customer fails to do so forthwith to enter upon any premises of the Customer or any third party where the Goods are stored and repossess the Goods. The Customer shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Company, but ifthe Customer does so all monies owing by the Customer to the Company shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Company) forthwith become due and payable.
