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.

27.1 that, in the event of any bankruptcy or other administration of the Landlord’s estate or any winding up or scheme of arrangement of the Landlord, 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 Landlord and shall hold any such debt, liability or security, and any rights or benefits in respect thereof, on trust for the Supplier;
27.2 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;

28.4 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.
29. The Guarantor agrees that a notice issued by the Supplier stating any moneys owed by the Landlord or Guarantor to the Supplier or any related body corporate or under this Guarantee shall be conclusive evidence of such amounts owing by the Landlord and Guarantor.
30. 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.
31. 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.
32. The guarantee and indemnity contained in this Guarantee are separate and independent obligations of the Guarantor and neither limits the generality of the other.
33. 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.
34. 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.
