Terms of Purchase
These standard terms and conditions apply to all sale of products by Whites Group Pty Ltd ABN 25 001 845 478 (“Whites Group”) to any customer (“the Customer”).
Title to Products
Until the purchase price of the products and all other sums due by the Customer to Whites Group upon any account whatsoever have been paid or satisfied in full:
- The products shall remain the property of Whites Group notwithstanding the delivery of the products and the passing of risk to the Customer;
- Whites Group may at any time recover the products if they are in the Customer’s possession and re-sell the products if any payment owed by the Customer on any account is overdue;
- For the purpose of so recovering the products, Whites Group, its servants or agents may enter upon the Customer’s or other premises upon which the products are located;
- The Customer shall possess all products on a fiduciary basis only and holds the products as bailee for Whites Group; and
- In the event that the Customer uses the products in some manufacturing or construction process of its own or some third party, then the Customer must hold such part of the proceeds of sale of such manufacturing or construction process as relates to the products in trust for Whites Group. Such part will be an amount equal in dollar terms to the amount owing by the Customer to Whites Group at the time of the receipt of such proceeds. The Customer will pay Whites Group such funds held in trust upon demand by Whites Group.
- The Customer has the right to dispose of the products in the course of its business for the account of Whites Group and to pass good title to the products to its customer being a bona fide purchaser for value without notice of Whites Group’s rights.
