Terms and Conditions of Sale

  1. Orders: L&H may accept or reject any order for Products. Acceptance of an
    order may be in whole or in part, by delivery of the relevant Products or in such
    other manner communicated by L&H to the Customer, including where the
    Products are backordered. Where the order value is less than $55.00 (inclusive
    of GST), L&H may apply a handling fee of $10.00 (inclusive of GST).
    Notwithstanding that acceptance of an order has been communicated to the
    Customer, L&H may in its complete discretion refuse to supply the Products (or
    such part of the Products) at any time. Without limiting any other provision of
    these Terms, L&H is not liable for any loss or claim suffered by the Customer as
    a consequence of L&H taking such action.
  2. Delivery: Unless otherwise agreed, L&H will arrange for the delivery of the
    Products to the Customer. Risk of loss passes to the Customer on the earliest to
    occur of collection of the Products by the Customer from an L&H branch or
    other L&H specified location; delivery of the Products to the Customer or third
    party site designated by the Customer; or delivery of the Products by L&H to a
    carrier for the purpose of delivering the Products to the Customer or third party
    site. Delivery of Products to the Customer will be to a single site, unless
    otherwise agreed in writing by L&H and the Customer. Requests for proof of
    delivery may only be made within 30 days of the invoice date. If a request is not
    made within this time, Products are deemed delivered.
  3. Pricing: Prices for Products are those quoted by L&H in writing and are open
    for the period of time specified in the quotation or 30 days, whichever is the
    lesser. Otherwise, the prices for Products will be as set out in L&H’s then current
    price list. L&H may charge delivery fees and storage fees for Products.
  4. Payment: The Customer must pay for all Products supplied by L&H within 30
    days after the end of the month in respect of which the invoice relating to the
    Products is dated or any longer period approved by L&H to the Customer. The
    Customer may not withhold, set-off or otherwise resist payment on any basis.
    Payment by credit card will incur a transaction fee.
  5. Interest: L&H is entitled to charge the Customer interest on amounts not paid
    within the specified credit period in an amount equal to 2% of the amount
    outstanding, calculated monthly from the invoice date until payment of the debt.
  6. Discounts: In addition to all other rights of L&H, if the Customer is in breach of
    any of its obligations under the Contract, any discounts, including settlement
    discounts, rebates or other economic benefits provided to the Customer by L&H
    are automatically revoked and the prices for Products will be adjusted upwards
    accordingly.
  7. GST: Each amount payable by the Customer under these Terms in respect of a
    Taxable Supply by L&H is a GST exclusive amount and the Customer must, in
    addition to that amount and at the same time, pay the GST payable in respect of
    that supply. “Taxable Supply” and “GST” have the meanings set out in the A New
    Tax System (Goods and Services) Act 1999.
  8. Withdrawal or Variation of Credit: L&H may, at any time, without the need to
    provide a reason and without any obligation on L&H to notify the Customer,
    increase, decrease or withdraw any credit facilities granted to the Customer.
  9. Ownership: (a) Title to and ownership of the Products does not pass until the
    Customer and all Related Bodies Corporate of the Customer have paid all
    moneys owing to L&H on any account in full. (b) Until payment of all such
    moneys, the Customer holds the Products as fiduciary bailee and agent for L&H
    and must keep the Products physically separate from all other goods of the
    Customer, and clearly identified as owned by L&H. (c) If an Event of Default
    occurs, then without prejudice to L&H’s other rights, L&H may on providing
    reasonable notice to the Customer, enter any premises occupied by the
    Customer or any other place where the Products may be, and recover
    possession of them. If the Products are on a third party site, the Customer must
    procure access rights for L&H from the controller of the third party site such that
    L&H may enter onto the site and recover and retake possession of them on
    reasonable notice. (d) If the Customer sells any of the Products while money is
    owed to L&H, the Customer holds the proceeds on trust for L&H. Such proceeds
    shall be deemed to equal in dollar terms such corresponding part of the amount
    owed by the Customer to L&H at the time of receipt (e) If the Customer uses the
    Products in some manufacturing or construction process of its own or of some
    third party, then the Customer shall hold such part of the proceeds of such
    manufacturing or construction process as relates to such Products in trust for
    L&H. Such proceeds shall be deemed to equal in dollar terms the corresponding
    amount owing by the Customer to L&H at the time of receipt. (f) Until payment
    of all moneys owing on any account to L&H, any proceeds referred to above
    received by the Customer must be held in a separate account and not mixed
    with any other funds. (g) The rights of L&H under this clause 9 do not limit or
    exclude any other rights of L&H against the Customer.
  10. Charge over Customer’s Property: As security for payment to L&H of all
    moneys payable by the Customer, the Customer charges in favour of L&H the
    whole of the Customer’s undertaking, property and assets (including, without
    limitation, all of the Customer’s interests both legal and beneficial in freehold
    and leasehold land) both current and later acquired. The Customer irrevocably
    appoints each Officer as its attorney to do all things necessary to register each
    such charge.
  11. Security Interests: (a) Terms that are defined in the Personal Property
    Securities Act 2009 (PPSA) have the same meaning in this clause. (b) The
    Customer agrees and acknowledges that, for the purposes of the PPSA, L&H has
    a security interest in the Products and in any right in relation to or derived from
    the Products and such other undertaking, property and assets of the Customer.
    (c) L&H may register its security interests under clause 9, 10 and 11. (d) The
    Customer waives the right to receive a verification statement under the PPSA. (e)
    The Customer agrees that, if Chapter 4 of the PPSA applies to the enforcement
    of L&H’s security interests, the following provisions of the PPSA will not apply to
    that enforcement: section 95 to the extent that it requires L&H to give a notice to
    the Customer; section 96; section 130, to the extent that it requires L&H to give a
    notice to the Company; subsection 132(3)(d); subsection 132(4); section 135;
    section 142 and section 143. (f) Subject to subsection 275(7) of the PPSA, neither
    party may disclose information of the kind referred to in subsection 275(1) of the
    PPSA.
  12. Suspension or Ceasing of Supply: (a) L&H may in its complete discretion and
    without incurring any liability to the Customer, cease or suspend supply of
    Products to the Customer even if an order is part fulfilled. (b) Without limiting
    clause (a) or any other rights L&H has, if an Event of Default occurs L&H may,
    without prejudice to its other rights, call up moneys owed to it by the Customer,
    retain all moneys paid on account, or cease further deliveries and recover from
    the Customer all loss of profits arising therefrom, and/or enter onto any
    premises where Products are located and with the full cooperation and
    assistance of the Customer and retake possession of any Products. Where the
    Products are located on a third party site, the Customer must procure access for
    L&H or its representatives.
  13. Liability of L&H: (a) Subject to clauses (b) and (c) below, L&H will not be liable
    for any loss or damage whatsoever suffered by the Customer as a result of any
    act, omission or statement made by L&H, its employees, contractors or agents
    whether negligent or not, except that nothing in these Terms limits any liability
    imposed by any statute unless or to the extent that it is lawful to do so. Without
    limiting the foregoing, any works, including rectification works are at the sole
    cost and expense of the Customer. (b) In respect of Products supplied by L&H to
    the Customer, subject to clause (d), if the Customer is a Consumer, the liability of
    L&H however caused, suffered or incurred by the Customer because of a failure
    to comply with a Consumer Guarantee is limited, at L&H’s option, to
    replacement of the Product or supply of equivalent Product; repair of the
    Product; payment of the cost of replacing the Product or acquiring equivalent
    Product; or payment of the cost of having the Product repaired. (c) In respect of
    services supplied by L&H to the Customer, subject to clause (d), if the Customer
    is a Consumer, the liability of L&H however caused, suffered or incurred by the
    Customer because of a failure to comply with a Consumer Guarantee is limited,
    at L&H’s option, to supplying the services again or payment of the cost of having
    the services supplied again. (d) Clauses (b) and (c) do not apply if: it is not ‘fair
    and reasonable’ for L&H to rely on them in accordance with section 64A(3) and
    (4) of the Australian Consumer Law; the Products are Consumer Goods; the
    services are Consumer Services; or the loss arises in relation to any guarantee
    pursuant to any of sections 51, 52 or 53 of the Australian Consumer Law.
  14. Warranties: (a) This clause does not apply to a Customer who is a Consumer.
    Otherwise, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that it has not relied on any
    representation made by L&H which has not been expressly stated in these
    Terms. Any representation, advice, recommendation, information or assistance
    provided by L&H in relation to the Products supplied or their use or application
    must not be relied upon by the Customer and the Customer acknowledges and
    agrees that it is the Customer’s responsibility to satisfy itself as to the
    appropriate use or application of the Products and that the Products are
    suitable for any particular purpose. Any description of our Products including
    any specifications, diagrams, samples or drawings are approximate and are
    given by way of identification only. Without limiting this clause (a), the use of that
    description does not constitute a sale by description and does not form part of
    the Contract. The Customer indemnifies L&H against all loss, cost, expense,
    demand, claim or liability suffered or sustained by L&H in connection with any
    act or omission of the Customer including but not limited to negligence of the
    Customer or any unauthorised representation made or warranty given by the
    Customer in connection with the Products. (b) This clause does not apply to a
    Customer who is a Consumer. Otherwise, the Customer will have no claim for
    defects in respect of any Products apparent on inspection unless a written
    complaint is received by L&H within 7 days of receipt of the Products by the
    Customer, which complaint identifies the defect. L&H will, at its option, accept
    the return of, or give a credit for Products where: the Customer has complied
    with this clause (b); L&H is satisfied as to the claim by the Customer; in the case
    of Products that have at the request of the Customer been specifically sourced,
    the supplier of such Products will accept return of the Products for credit; and, if
    L&H elects to have the Products returned, the Products are returned to L&H in
    the same condition as when first delivered to the Customer with the relevant
    invoice number and date of order. L&H will not accept the return of or give
    credit for Products supplied in cut lengths or otherwise fabricated to Customer
    specifications or requirements. L&H may, at its sole discretion, accept the return
    of, or give credit for, Products that are not damaged or defective if requested by
    the Customer. All Products returned are subject to a minimum handling charge
    of 20% of the invoiced price except in the case of defective Products or Products
    incorrectly supplied. In the case of buy-ins against Customer orders, credit will
    only be allowed if the original manufacturer/supplier also accepts the return.
  15. Certification: A statement signed by an Officer certifying the amount of any
    moneys payable by the Customer or identifying any Products as “unpaid for” is,
    in the absence of manifest error, conclusive and binding on the Customer. A text
    or electronic mail message from L&H to the Customer constitutes a statement
    by an Officer for the purposes of this clause.
  16. Notification of Change of Details: The Customer will notify L&H of any change
    in its ownership, structure or management, including any change of director,
    shareholder or beneficiaries, or any change in partnership or trusteeship within
    7 days of the date of change.
  17. Provision of Financial Information: The Customer will supply, promptly on
    request of L&H and, in any event no later than 5 days after such a request is
    made, certified copies of its most recent financial statements (including
    management accounts, if required), tax returns and any other financial
    information of the Customer requested by L&H.
  18. Intellectual Property: These Terms do not give the Customer any intellectual
    property rights in the Products. L&H is not liable to the Customer for any
    infringement or unauthorised use of intellectual property rights.
  19. Effect of Other Terms: These Terms supersede all previous terms and
    conditions between L&H and the Customer. No terms of the Customer apply to
    any agreement between the Customer and L&H.
  20. Amendment to Terms: L&H may amend these Terms from time to time
    without reference to the Customer and such Terms, as amended, will apply from
    such date. The current Terms are available on the L&H website at
    www.lh.com.au. The Customer agrees that any orders placed with L&H are
    subject to the Terms displayed on the website as at the date the order is
    accepted by L&H.
  21. Expenses: The Customer must pay to L&H any costs, charges and expenses
    (including all stamp duty and legal fees calculated on a full indemnity basis)
    incurred by L&H in connection with the entry into these terms, the exercise or
    attempted exercise of any power, right or remedy under these Terms, and the
    failure of the Customer to comply with these Terms.
  22. Trusts: These Terms bind the Customer both personally and as trustee of
    any trusts of which the Customer is trustee.
  23. Severance: Each clause and sub-clause of these Terms is separate and
    independent. If any clause or sub-clause is found to be invalid or ineffective, the
    other clauses or sub-clauses or parts will not be adversely affected.
  24. Application of Laws: The parties submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of
    the courts of Victoria and the law applying to Victoria is the proper law governing
    these Terms.
  25. Set-Off: L&H may set-off amounts owing by L&H to the Customer or the
    Customer’s Related Bodies Corporate against moneys owing by the Customer to
    L&H on any account. L&H’s right of set-off does not exclude or limit the
    Customer’s obligations (including to pay) in any way. The Customer may not set-
    off.

    or knowledge of the Customer.

    to recover from the Guarantor the value of that payment as if that payment had
    never been made.
  2. Indemnity

    irrevocably indemnifies L&H against any loss L&H suffers as a result of the non-
    payment of the Guaranteed Moneys. L&H need not incur any expense or make
    any payment before enforcing this right of indemnity.
  3. Waiver
    No failure or delay by L&H to exercise any power, right or remedy under this

    power, right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise of that power,
    right or remedy. L&H’s rights and remedies under this Guarantee are in addition
    to any rights and remedies arising at law.
  4. Claim in Insolvency
    Until this Guarantee is released by L&H, the Guarantor will not, without L&H’s

    the Guarantor to comply with any obligations under this Guarantee.
  8. Acknowledgment
    The Guarantor acknowledges that the Guarantor: (a) has entered into this

    operation of law or otherwise.
