Title of the goods supplied by Essential Distribution P/L to the customer will not pass to the customer until such time as all goods supplied by us to the customer have been paid for in full.
Upon delivery of the goods to the customer, notwithstanding that the title to the goods may not have passed to the customer, the goods shall be held at the Customer’s risk and expense in respect of any loss or damage, theft or deterioration from any cause whatsoever and the customer shall be solely responsible in respect of amount owing, charge or expense incurred in relation to the said goods.

If that provision cannot be read down then it is to be, if possible, severed to the extent that it does not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining Terms and Conditions.
