After the Auction End, Inglis shall be authorised on behalf of the Vendor to complete the registration and transfer documentation in the name of the Purchaser, and to do all such other acts and things as may be necessary to effect the transfer of title to the Lot.

    2. If the Purchaser takes delivery of the Lot prior to payment of the Purchase Price and the sale is cancelled pursuant to clause 8.3(a), the Vendor and/or Inglis may, without any prior notice to the Purchaser, take all necessary steps and use any reasonable force, either by themselves or through servants and agents, to recover possession of the Lot. For this purpose they may enter upon any land or premises and repossess the Lot. All costs and expenses of any such repossession activity shall be a debt owing by the Purchaser to the Vendor or Inglis (as the case may be). Until payment of the Purchase Price in full, the Purchaser shall at all times inform Inglis of the address of the premises at which the Lot is for the time being located.
    3. If:
      1. sale is cancelled by the Purchaser as a consequence of a breach of a Vendor warranty under clause 13; and

        the Lot shall be returned to the Vendor at the Vendor's expense. Any transportation, agistment and veterinary costs incurred by the Purchaser from the date of purchase up to cancellation of the sale shall be to the Purchaser's account.

    5. If in Inglis' opinion Inglis' security position or obligations under or in connection with these terms and conditions of sale and any credit or financing arrangement between the parties have been or will be materially adversely affected, Inglis may by notice to the Purchaser cancel any credit or financing arrangement between the parties and the Purchaser must immediately pay to Inglis all monies owing by the Purchaser to Inglis within 15 business days of that cancellation.
    6.

    3. Inglis shall not have any liability either to the Vendor in consequence of any breach or default on the part of the Purchaser, or to the Purchaser in consequence of any breach or default on the part of the Vendor.
