4.9 Baxi Genuine Parts may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
5. WARRANTY AND RETURNS PROCEDURE
5.1 Baxi Genuine Parts warrants that on delivery and for the Warranty Period the Goods shall:
5.1.1 conform in all material respects with their Specification;
5.1.2 be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
5.1.3 be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979); and
5.1.4 be fit for any purpose held out by Baxi Genuine Parts.
5.2 Subject to clause 5.3, if:
5.2.1 the Customer gives notice in writing to Baxi Genuine Parts within 10 Business Days of the expiry of the Warranty Period; and
5.2.2 the Customer complies with the provisions of the Baxi Genuine Parts Returns Policy and Procedure; and
5.2.3 Baxi is given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Goods
Baxi shall, at its option replace, refund or credit the price of the defective Goods in full.
5.3 Baxi shall not be liable for Goods' failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1 upon the occurrence of any one or more of the following events:
5.3.1 the defect arises because the Customer (or, as applicable, the End User) failed to follow Baxi Genuine Parts' oral or written instructions as to the storage, commissioning, installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good trade practice regarding the same;
5.3.2 the Customer (or, as applicable, the End User) alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of Baxi Genuine Parts; and
5.3.3 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions.
5.4 The Customer undertakes to notify Baxi Genuine Parts of any Goods damaged in transit within seven days of delivery to Customer. Failure to do so could result in the Customer being unable to claim replacement Goods from Baxi Genuine Parts.
5.5 Baxi Genuine Parts accepts that the Customer may make returns upon other limited grounds only (such grounds not being covered by the warranty in this clause 5) as such limited grounds are set out in section 4 of the Baxi Genuine Parts Returns Policy and Procedure.
5.6 The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract. Further all other conditions, warranties or other terms which might have effect between the parties or be implied or incorporated, whether by statute, common law or otherwise, are hereby excluded to the fullest extent provided by law.
6. GUARANTEE UPON RESALE
6.1 Where the Customer (as a merchant) resells the Goods to any End User, the End User shall have the benefit of the warranty in clause 5.1 for the duration of the End User Warranty Period, subject to the Customer (and, as applicable, the End User) complying with the remaining provisions of clause 5 and the Baxi Genuine Parts Returns Policy and Procedure.
6.2 Baxi Genuine Parts strongly recommends to the Customer that it is good practice to gain proof of purchase for guarantee returns from their End User, clearly showing the date that the item was purchased and delivered to the End User for the purposes of determining the date upon which the End User Warranty Period commenced. Adoption of this practice reduces the risk of disagreement with both End Users and with Baxi Genuine Parts.
6.3 Baxi Genuine Parts further recommends that Customers should, when placing an Order for Goods, take into account:
6.3.1 the Warranty Period applicable to the Goods;
6.3.2 the date on which Baxi Genuine Parts' liability under the applicable Warranty Period expires; and
6.3.3 the risk to Customer that if Goods are delivered to its End User after the expiry of the three months' grace period identified at clause 1.1 (b), the End User shall nevertheless, subject to the applicable exclusions in clause 5, remain entitled to seek to enforce any warranty against Customer for the entire duration of the End User Warranty Period in respect of the Goods purchased, notwithstanding that the Customer's Warranty Period may have expired and as such the Customer would no longer be entitled to enforce the warranty against Baxi Genuine Parts.
7. TITLE AND RISK
7.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.
7.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the earlier of:
7.2.1 Baxi Genuine Parts receiving payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for:
(a) the Goods; and
(b) and any other goods that Baxi Genuine Parts has supplied to the Customer
in which case title to the Goods shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums; and
7.2.2 the Customer reselling the Goods, in which case title to the Goods shall pass to the Customer at the time specified in clause 7.4.
7.3 Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
7.3.1 store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as Baxi Genuine Parts' property;
7.3.2 not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods;
7.3.3 maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;

7.3.5 give Baxi Genuine Parts such information relating to the Goods as Baxi Genuine Parts may require from time to time.
7.4 Subject to clause 7.5, the Customer may resell or use the Goods in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before Baxi Genuine Parts receives payment for the Goods. However, if the Customer resells the Goods before that time:
7.4.1 it does so as principal and not as Baxi Genuine Parts' agent; and
7.4.2 title to the Goods shall pass from Baxi Genuine Parts to the Customer immediately before the time at which resale by the Customer occurs.
7.5 If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 9.2, then, without limiting any other right or remedy Baxi Genuine Parts may have:
7.5.1 the Customer's right to resell the Goods or use them in the ordinary course of its business ceases immediately; and
7.5.2 Baxi Genuine Parts may at any time:
(a) require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession which have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product; and
(b) if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.
8. PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 The price of the Goods and any additional carriage costs shall be the price set out in the Baxi Genuine Parts order acknowledgment, or, if no price is quoted, the price set out in its published price list in force as at the date of delivery (as amended by the terms of any applicable Trading Agreement). For the avoidance of doubt, the price on the order acknowledgement (or the published price list if applicable) shall override any purported price on any Customer documentation or order to Baxi Genuine Parts.
8.2 Where the parties have entered into a Trading Agreement then the Trading Agreement may set out details of any additional charges payable by the Customer for example as regards carriage charges for non-standard delivery.
8.3 The price of the Goods is exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax (VAT). The Customer shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from Baxi Genuine Parts, pay to Baxi Genuine Parts such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Goods.
8.4 Baxi Genuine Parts may invoice the Customer for the Goods on or at any time after the completion of dispatch or making the Goods available for collection (as applicable).
8.5 The Customer shall pay the invoice in full and in cleared funds on or before the end of the month following the month in which the invoice was dated.
8.6 If the Customer fails to make any payment due to Baxi Genuine Parts under the Contract by the due date for payment, then the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above Barclays Bank plc base rate from time to time.
