TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS

  1. The Products sold shall remain the personal property of Rotobrush until fully paid for in cash, and Purchaser agrees, if requested by Rotobrush, to execute a security agreement covering the Products sold and to perform all acts, including but not limited to the execution and filing of UCC-1 financing statements, which may be necessary to perfect and assure retention of title to such Products by Rotobrush.  Notwithstanding any agreement with respect to passage of legal title to the Products, risk of loss and damage shall pass to Purchaser and delivery shall be deemed to be complete upon the Products’ arrival at the points set forth in Paragraph 2, above, or upon moving into storage, whichever occurs first.

PAYMENT

  1.

Should manufacture be delayed by Purchaser, pro rata payments shall become due if and to the extent required of Rotobrush by its contracts with the manufacturer.   All installment deliveries shall be separately invoiced and paid for without regard to subsequent deliveries.  Delays in delivery or nonconformities in any installment shall not relieve Purchaser of its obligations to accept and pay for remaining installments.A service charge equal to the lesser of:  (i) one and one-half percent (1½%) per month for an annual rate of eighteen (18%) percent, or (ii) the highest rate allowed by law, shall be charged on all overdue accounts of Purchaser with Rotobrush.
