Retention of Title/All Monies Clause
(a) The risk of Goods shall pass immediately they are delivered into the physical custody of a buyer or his agents, or otherwise to this order. We shall retain sole and absolute property in any goods as Legal or Beneficial owner until the seller has received full payment for all sums then owed by the Buyer to the Seller and until that time a buyer shall be in possession of the Goods as bailee for us and shall be deemed to have so acknowledged. Until the full invoice price has been paid a buyer shall store the goods separately from other goods and in a manner, which makes them readily identifiable as goods delivered by us.
(b) A buyers right to possession of any Goods for which the full invoice price has not been paid shall cease if being an individual, he commits an available act of bankruptcy or, being a company, a receiver becomes entitled to present a petition for its winding up or it is resolved that it would be wound up. We shall be entitled in these events to enter at any time and with or without vehicles upon any premises of buyer at which we reasonably believe such goods to be stored and to repossess them.
(c) A buyer shall be at liberty in the ordinary course of business to process and make products from and, as our agent, to sell goods for which the full invoice price has been paid. The proceeds of any such sales shall be for our account and shall be held in trust for us to the extent of the full invoice price of the goods.
VAT is payable by the purchaser in all cases at the rate in force at the date of delivery.
No liability is accepted by the Seller for any direct or indirect loss arising from non delivery or delay in delivery of any goods caused by an Act of God, Riot or Civil Commotion, War, Strike, Lockout, Fire, Flood, Drought, Act of Government, failure to obtain or shortages in raw materials or any other cause whatsoever beyond its control.
All quotations and contracts shall be governed by English law and the jurisdiction of the English Courts.
Payments should be made by bank transfer or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to JM Office Stationery Ltd, and crossed A/c Payee Only not negotiable. Each payment remains the responsibility of the buyer until such time it is actually received and acknowledged by the seller. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, our standard terms for account credit facilities are payment of invoice within 30 days end of month, unless specified otherwise on the invoice. For accounts not paid by the due date, a 5% surcharge is added for each month or part thereof after the due date.
Deliveries made under the contract shall be deemed to have been made in respect of separate sales of each weight, description or quality of goods, which each such delivery may comprise.
Unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing payment for each delivery is due on the date thereof and payment of that date or upon the date(s) otherwise so agreed shall be a condition precedent to any further deliveries.
Please note all accounts beyond our credit terms will be passed to a debt collection agency. All accounts, without exception, will be subject to a surcharge of 15% plus vat to cover our costs in recovery. These accounts will also be subject to any legal costs incurred in obtaining settlement.
In the event of any loss or damage or delay to any Goods delivered at our risk to a buyer or to his agent or otherwise to his order notice of the same shall be given to us in writing by the buyer forthwith upon deliver (or, in case of the loss of any goods, at the time when the goods should have been delivered) and the buyer shall at the same time take all necessary steps to notify the carrier in writing of any such loss damage or delay and shall in all cases where possible enter a note of the same upon the carrier receipt. If by reason of the failure of the buyer to give any such notice as provided above we are precluded from making a recovery from the carrier in respect of the loss or damage or delay complained of then we shall be liable to pay for the goods as though no such damage or delay had occurred.
The seller will endeavor to deliver the goods within the time agreed, or within a reasonable time if no time is agreed, but in no circumstances will the seller be liable for loss or damage of any kind whatsoever caused directly or indirectly by the delay in the delivery of the goods.
The seller will not be liable for any loss or damage of any kind whatsoever caused directly or indirectly by the non-supply of any of the goods displayed in the catalogue.
