The goods remain the possession of the seller until the buyer has fulfilled his part of the contract. If the buyer is a salesman and the contract belongs to his trading conditions, the wares remain the possession of the seller until all demands of the seller’s contract, including future, present and past contracts, have been fulfilled. The buyer is entitled to re-sell the goods bought. However, the buyer signs over all demands from the re-selling, up to the value of the original sales contract, to the seller. The buyer is permitted, within the frame of his normal business conditions, to accept payment. The seller can revoke this permission if he has reasonable grounds – especially concerning delayed payment, stoppage of payments, etc.
The buyer is forbidden to pawn or pledge the conditional goods. In the case that the goods are impounded or otherwise restricted by a 3rd party, it is the duty of the buyer to immediately indicate the ownership of the goods and to inform the seller of the impounding either by telephone and to follow this up in written form.
On further processing of the goods with other wares not belonging to the seller, the seller is granted a share in the ownership of the finished product according to the proportional value of the seller’s wares in the new product at the time of the process.
On deliberate breach of contract, especially non payment, the seller is entitled to re-possess the goods. Repossession of the goods is not a cancellation of the contract as long as the Instalment Sales Statue is not involved.
If the goods are defective or do not fulfill the advertised properties, the seller can at his discretion replace it or repair it, under the exclusion of any other warranty claim. If neither replacement nor repair solve the problem, the purchaser may demand a price reduction or cancel the sales contract. Obvious defects must be indicated in writing within two weeks of delivery. If the purchaser does not act within this time, he loses all guarantee. The seller can demand compensation for the time and cost invested in research for an indicated but unproven fault. The maintenance tarif is applied in this case. Second-hand goods are not covered by guarantee.
Requests for compensation for breach of contract, error during the signing of the contract or unauthorized trading cannot be brought against the seller and his deputies as long as the breach was not intentional or through negligence. This does not apply in the case of violation of major clauses in the contract. Further, this does not apply to compensation for non-delivery of product characteristics, which arise whilst protecting the purchaser against defective products.
Rights and duties:
The purchaser is not authorized to concede the rights and duties of the contract to a third party without the agreement of the seller.
Should a clause of these terms of business become invalid, this does not influence any other clauses of the terms. All litigations resulting from a trade between the seller and any legal person of public right are subject exclusively to the competence of qualified German jurisdiction at the commercial seat of the selle.
