1.9.3         Where the Client is a Wholesaler or a business purchasing the Goods on behalf of a third party, the Client may re-sell the Goods in good faith in the ordinary course of business (but not otherwise deal with them until ownership has passed to the Client) and ownership shall pass to the person to whom such Goods are re-sold at the time of sale. 

 

1.9.4         Where the Client sells any of the Goods which it does not have ownership of, then until such time as the conditions are fulfilled so that had the Goods continued to be in the possession of the Client ownership would have passed to the Client, the Client shall hold the consideration received for such sale on trust for the Company and account to the Company for such funds and further the Client assigns to the Company the benefit of all rights and claims the Client has in respect of the Goods re-sold.

      

1.9.5         In any of the circumstances set out in Clause 1.10 and in respect of any of the Goods in respect of which ownership has not passed to the Client, the Client shall cease to be entitled to deal with such Goods in any way whatsoever and must place them at the disposal of the Company who shall have the right to repossess such goods and the Client irrevocably grants the Company authority to enter any place to which the Client is entitled to grant such access (or, if such Goods are stored in some other place, the Client will use best endeavours to procure such access) so that the Company may recover such Goods.
