29/11/2019 08:25Is it possible you can review the attached contract we have from EVO,
this is in relation to card terminals that we purchase from EVO to be leased to our customersThe only question we are concerned with is what happens to the terminals if the contract is terminated. We are under the understanding that the terminals would remain the property of XE POS but after reading the contract I wanted to be certain. Clause 2.6 and 10 deal with this but its not quite clear from these points
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
some thoughts below on the contractsclause 2.5 says the title passes to the buyer after payment obligation is metwe pay invoice on a 30 day invoice basis for the terminals so payment is normally completed in this period2.6 starts by talking about about title of the terminals prior to payment but then further down has "seller may pursue to take immediate possession of the terminals ". we wanted to understand is this relating to terminals that are not paid for or for all terminals
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
we are only concerned with ownership of the terminals where the title has passed to us and the agreement is cancelled under clause 10
Expert:  JimLawyer replied 7 months ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** take a look and I will come back to you shortly

Expert:  JimLawyer replied 7 months ago.

section 10 covers termination of the contract but insofar as the terminals are concerned, if you defaulted on a payment then it would be open to the company to take possession of the terminals. Clause 2.6 just refers to "payment obligations". It then refers to a "purchase money security interest" - which I am not sure of.....

I will therefore opt out to let another expert assist you with your question going forwards. Please do not reply to this message as the question will stay with me and there will be a delay with the reallocation.

Many thanks.
