If the buyer has a receiver appointed over any of its assets or (being an individual or firm) becomes bankrupt or compounds with its creditors or (being a company) becomes insolvent or goes into liquidation then without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company the full price for the goods shall be immediately payable. The Company shall have the right to cancel or suspend any further deliveries to the customer and if the price for any delivered goods is not forthwith paid the Company shall have the right to enter the customer’s premises and repossess goods.

Unless specifically agreed in writing all costs incurred by the Company in connection with dispatch and carriage shall be deemed to be fully chargeable to the customer.

The title in any goods supplied shall remain invested in the Company until unconditional payment in full is received and cleared through the Company’s bank account, but risk and liability thereon shall pass to the customer on delivery.
