11.1 The risk of damage to or the loss of Goods supplied by Maplin will pass to the Trade Customer when the goods are loaded on to the delivery vehicles at Maplin premises. However the title of the goods will not pass to the Trade Customer until payment in full of all sums due from the Trade Customer to Maplin has been made. Risk in the Goods will not transfer to the Consumer until the Goods are in the physical possession of the Consumer.

11.2 Delivery having been made, the property in the goods shall not pass from Maplin until

(i) The Customer shall have paid the price plus VAT in full; and
(ii) No other sums whatever shall remain owing to Maplin.

The Trade Customer shall store the products (at no cost to Maplin) separately from all other Products in its possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as Maplin property. Notwithstanding that the Products (or any part of them) remain the property of Maplin, the Trade Customer may sell or use the Products in the ordinary course of the Trade Customer’s business at full market value for the account of Maplin. Any such sale or dealing shall be a sale or use of Maplin property by the Trade Customer on the Trade Customer’s own behalf and the Trade Customer shall deal as principal when making such sales or dealings. Until property of the Goods passes from Maplin the entire proceeds of sale or otherwise of the Products shall be held in trust for Maplin and shall not be mixed with other money or paid into any overdrawn bank account and shall be at all material times identified as Maplin money. Maplin shall be entitled to recover the price (plus VAT) notwithstanding that property in any of the Goods has not passed from Maplin.

11.4 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes from Maplin, the Trade Customer shall upon request deliver up such of the Goods as have not ceased to be in existence or resold to Maplin. If the Trade Customer fails to return Goods, Maplin may enter any premises owned occupied or controlled by the Trade Customer where the Goods are situated and repossess the Goods. On the making of such repossession the rights of the Trade Customer shall cease.

11.5 The Trade Customer shall not pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods that are the property of Maplin.
