49.    In consideration of Smoke Alarm Solutions Pty Ltd ABN 97 604 793 688 (“Supplier”) agreeing to supply or continuing to supply Goods to the Customer on credit, the guarantor named in the Application Form (“Guarantor”) unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees on demand to the Supplier the due and punctual payment of all debts and monetary liabilities, including without limitation costs and expenses which are or which may become payable by the Customer to the Supplier or any related body corporate on any account and in any capacity (“Guaranteed Moneys”) and, as a separate and independent obligation, agrees to indemnify and keep the Supplier and any related body corporate of the Supplier indemnified from and against any claim, action, loss, damage, liability, cost, expense, outgoing or payment suffered, paid or incurred by the Supplier or such related body corporate in relation to the non-payment or non-recovery of the Guaranteed Moneys or as a result of any breach by the Customer of the Supplier’s Terms and Conditions of Supply and Installation.

50.   The Guarantor charges all of the Guarantor’s present and after acquired personal property in favour of the Supplier to secure the performance of all obligations of the Guarantor and the payment of all monies owed or payable to the Supplier pursuant to this Guarantee.  The Guarantor waives its right to receive all notices which sections 144(b) and 157(3) of the PPSA permit the Guarantor to waive.  The Guarantor consents to the Supplier creating a registration on the PPSR (in any manner the Supplier deems appropriate) in relation to any security interest arising under, in connection with or contemplated by this Guarantee.  The Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that, pursuant to section 115 of the PPSA, the Supplier need not comply with sections 95, 118, 123, 128, 129, 130, 132(1) and (4), 135, 142 and 143 of the PPSA.  The Guarantor agrees to promptly execute any documents, provide all relevant information, fully cooperate with the Supplier and do any other act or thing that the Supplier requires to ensure that any security granted pursuant to this Guarantee is duly perfected and has the priority as required by the Supplier.  In this clause 50, the following words have the respective meanings given to them in the PPSA: PPSR; registration; and security interest.

51.   The Guarantor hereby agrees with the Supplier that this Guarantee shall be a continuing obligation of the Guarantor and that the Guarantor’s obligations under this Guarantee are principal obligations and are not released, discharged or otherwise affected by anything which, but for this provision, might have that effect.

52.   Until such time that the Supplier has received all of the Guaranteed Moneys, the Guarantor agrees:

52.1           that, in the event of any bankruptcy or other administration of the Customer’s estate or any winding up or scheme of arrangement of the Customer, that the Guarantor will not, without the prior consent of the Supplier, lodge any proof of debt or similar claim in respect of any debt or liability to the Guarantor on any account whatsoever, nor enforce any security held by the Guarantor in respect of the Customer and shall hold any such debt, liability or security, and any rights or benefits in respect thereof, on trust for the Supplier;

52.2           if requested by the Supplier, to lodge a proof of debt or similar claim in any such administration and enforce any such security and to execute all such documents and do all such things as the Supplier may require to enable the Supplier to have and receive the benefit of or arising from any such proof, claim or security;

52.3           not to attempt or purport to be subrogated to the Supplier; and

52.4           that the Guarantor’s liability under this Guarantee shall be that of principal debtor.

53.   The Guarantor further agrees that:

53.1           the Guarantor has signed this Guarantee voluntarily;

53.2           before entering this Guarantee, the Guarantor had the opportunity to consult and receive advice as to the purpose, effect and consequences of, and obligations created by, this Guarantee from a legal adviser independent of the Supplier;

53.3           the Guarantor understands the nature and effect of this Guarantee, in particular that the Guarantor has agreed to guarantee all amounts presently owed by the Customer to the Supplier and any related body corporate and all amounts that the Customer may in the future owe to the Supplier and any related body corporate and has also agreed, as a separate and independent obligation, to provide an indemnity to the Supplier and any related body corporate if any of the Guaranteed Moneys are not paid to, or recovered by, the Supplier; and

53.4           it has not entered into this Guarantee on reliance on any representation, warranty, promise or statement of the Supplier or any person on behalf of the Supplier or any related body corporate.

54.   The Guarantor agrees that a notice issued by the Supplier stating any moneys owed by the Customer or Guarantor to the Supplier or any related body corporate or under this Guarantee shall be conclusive evidence of such amounts owing by the Customer and Guarantor.

55.   No payment shall operate to discharge or reduce a liability of the Guarantor if such payment is or becomes voidable under any law relating to bankruptcy or the winding up of companies, and no discharge or release consequent upon such payment shall discharge the liability of the Guarantor under this Guarantee.

56.   Where any provision or application of any provision of this Guarantee is rendered ineffective by operation of law in any jurisdiction, that shall not affect the validity, legality, enforceability or effectiveness of the remaining provisions or of that provision in any jurisdiction other than the jurisdiction where the provision is rendered ineffective.

57.   The guarantee and indemnity contained in this Guarantee are separate and independent obligations of the Guarantor and neither limits the generality of the other.

58.   All payments which the Guarantor is required to make under this Guarantee must be made without any set off, counterclaim, condition or deduction and are payable on demand by the Supplier.

59.   Any demand or notice may be served on the Guarantor by delivering it to the Guarantor personally or by sending it by post to the Guarantor’s last address.

60.   The Guarantor must fully indemnify the Supplier for all expenses and legal costs that the Supplier incurs in enforcing this Guarantee.
