The Customer and/or the Guarantor acknowledge and agree that the Company shall be entitled to lodge where appropriate a caveat, which caveat shall be withdrawn once all payments and other monetary obligations payable under these Terms have been met.

If the Customer defaults in the payment of the Guaranteed Monies, the Guarantor shall pay those monies immediately on demand to, or as directed by, the Company in order to discharge the debt owed to the Company in full.
This clause 19 shall constitute a continuing guarantee and indemnity to the Company for all Guaranteed Monies which are now or may from time to time be owing or remain unpaid.
The Guarantor's obligations under this clause 19 are primary obligations and are not ancillary or collateral to any other right or obligations. The Guarantors obligations may be enforced against the Guarantor without the Company being required to take action against the Customer whether by making a demand or under any security that it may hold for the Guaranteed Monies.
The liability of the Guarantor under this clause 19 is absolute and unconditional and it shall not be avoided, released or affected by anything at all which, but for this provision, might operate to relieve the Guarantor of any obligation in whole or in part.

Any terms and conditions of the Customer included on documents submitted to the Company are expressly excluded and do not apply.
All previous negotiations, representations, warranties, arrangements and statements (if any) whether expressed or implied, including any collateral agreement or warranty between the Customer and the Company, are excluded and cancelled.
If any of these Terms are found to be void, voidable or unenforceable the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired.
A waiver by either party of any breach or failure to enforce or to insist upon the observance of a condition of these Terms will not be a waiver of any other or of any subsequent breach.
These Terms can only be amended, supplemented or replaced by another document signed by the Customer and the Company.
The Customer may not assign these Terms without the Company's prior written consent.
Time is of the essence in relation to these Terms.
