RETENTION OF TITLE
The legal and equitable title to the goods supplied under the contract (in this condition referred to as “the contract goods” which expression includes any of them) will not pass to the Buyer until the price for the contract goods has been paid in full and until such payment the Buyer will hold them in a fiduciary capacity as bailee for the Company.
The Buyer shall be entitled to dispose of the goods for the account of the Company (but so that any warranties, conditions or representations given or made by the Buyer to his customer shall not bind the Company which shall be indemnified by the Buyer in respect thereof) and to pass good title to the goods to any customer which is a bona fide purchaser for value without notice of the Company’s rights.
Where the contract goods are resold by the Buyer and at the time of such resale the property in such goods has not passed to the Buyer then the proceeds of such resale will be held by the Buyer in a fiduciary capacity on trust for the Company and the Buyer will account to the Company for the same to the extent necessary to pay the price for the contract goods and the Company shall have the additional right to recover in the name of the Buyer (for which purpose the Company is hereby appointed the Buyer’s attorney) any price payable to the Buyer by his customer but if it shall exercise such right the Company shall account to the Buyer for the balance of the amounts recovered after recouping all debts due to the Company from the Buyer and the costs of such recovery.
The Buyer shall so long as the Company is entitled to the property in the contract, store the contract goods so that they are identifiable as the property of the Company.
Without prejudice and generality to the foregoing and to any of the Company’s other rights (whether to damages or under contract or otherwise howsoever) the Company may at any time after the price for the contract goods has become due and remains unpaid rescind the contract and/or recover any contract goods which are still the property of the Company. By entering into this contract, the Buyer hereby authorises the Company’s servants and agents to enter into any premises of the Buyer for that purpose.
