CONDITIONS OF AGREEMENT

STORAGE:
1. The Storer:
(a) may store Goods in the Space allocated to the Storer by the Facility Owner (“FO”), and
only in that Space:
(b) has knowledge of the Goods in the Space;
(c) warrants that they are the owner of the Goods in the Space, and/or are entitled at law to
deal with them in accordance with all aspects of this Agreement.
2. The FO :
(a) does not have and will not be deemed to have, knowledge of the Goods;
(b) is not a bailee nor a warehouseman of the Goods and the Storer acknowledges that the
FO does not take possession of the Goods.
COST:
3. The Storer must upon signing the Agreement pay to the FO:
(a) the Deposit (which, when applicable, will be refunded within 30 days of termination of
this Agreement) and/or
(b) the Administration Fee.
4. The Storer is responsible to pay:
(a) the Storage Fee being the amount indicated in this Agreement or the amount notified to
the Storer by the FO from time to time. The Storage Fee is payable in advance and it is the
Storer’s responsibility to make payment directly to the FO on time, and in full, throughout
the period of storage. Any Storage Fees paid by direct deposit/direct credit (“Direct
Payment”) will not be credited to Storer’s account unless the Storer identifies the Direct
Payment clearly and as reasonably directed by the FO. The FO is indemnified from any
claim for enforcement of the Agreement, including the sale or disposal of Goods, due to the
Storer’s failure to correctly identify a Direct Payment;
(b) the Cleaning Fee, as indicated on the front on this Agreement, is payable at the FO’s
reasonable discretion;
(c) a Late Payment Fee, as indicated on the front on this Agreement, which becomes payable
each time a payment is late;
(d) any reasonable costs incurred by the FO in collecting late or unpaid Storage Fees, or in
enforcing this Agreement in any way, including but not limited to postal, telephone, debt
collection, personnel and/or the Default Action costs.
5. The Storer will be responsible for payment of any government taxes or charges (including
any goods and services tax) being levied on this Agreement, or any supplies pursuant to this
Agreement.
DEFAULT:
6. (a) Notwithstanding clause 23,and subject to clause 6 b), the Storer acknowledges that,
in the event of the Storage Fee, or any other moneys owing under this Agreement, not
being paid in full within 42 days of the due date, the FO may enter the Space, by force or
otherwise, retain the Deposit and/or sell or dispose of any Goods in the Space on such terms
that the FO may determine (“Default Action”). For the purposes of the Personal Property
Securities Act 2009, the FO is deemed to be in possession of the Goods from the moment
the FO accesses the Space. The Storer consents to and authorises the sale or disposal of
all Goods regardless of their nature or value. The FO may also require payment of Default
Action costs, including any costs associated with accessing the Storer’s Space and disposal
or sale of the Storer’s Goods. Any excess funds will be returned to the Storer within 6
months of the sale of goods. In the event that the Storer cannot be located, excess funds will
be deposited with the Public Trustee or equivalent authority. In the event that the Storer has
more than one Space with the FO, default on either Space authorises the FO to take Default
Action against all Spaces.
(b) At least 14 days before the FO can take any Default Action the FO will provide the Storer
with Notice that the Storer is in Default. The FO will provide the Storer with reasonable time
to rectify the Default before any Default Action is taken.
RIGHT TO DUMP:
7. If, in the reasonable opinion of the FO, a defaulting Storer’s Goods are either not saleable,
fail to sell when offered for sale, may pose a health risk to staff or the public if handled, or
are not of sufficient value to warrant the expense of attempting to sell, the FO may dispose of
all Goods in the Storer’s Space by any means.
8. Further, upon Termination of the Agreement (Clause 23) by either the Storer or the FO,
in the event that a Storer fails to remove all Goods from their Space or the Facility the
FO is authorised to dispose of all Goods by any means 7 days from the Termination Date,
regardless of the nature or value of the Goods. The FO will give 7 days’ notice of intended
disposal.
9. Any items deemed left, in the FO’s reasonable opinion, unattended in common areas
or outside the Storer’s Space at any time may at the FO’s reasonable discretion be sold,
disposed, moved or dumped immediately and at the expense and liability of the Storer.

10. The Storer:
(a) has the right to access the Space during Access Hours as posted by the FO and subject to
the terms of this Agreement;
(b) will be solely responsible for the securing of the Space and shall so secure the Space at
all times when the Storer is not in the Space in a manner reasonably acceptable to the FO,
and where applicable will secure the external gates and/or doors of the Facility. The Storer
is not permitted to apply a padlock to their Space in the FO’s overlocking position, and the

reimbursement by the Storer to the value of the repairs and/or cleaning;

storing the Storer’s Goods, having specific consideration for the size, nature and condition of
the Space and Goods.
11. In addition to clause 6, the FO has the right to refuse access to the Space and/or the
Facility where any moneys are owing by the Storer to the FO.
12. The FO will not be liable for any loss or damages suffered by the Storer resulting from
any inability to access the Facility or the Space.
13. The FO reserves the right to relocate the Storer to another Space under certain
circumstances, including but not limited to unforeseen extraordinary events or
redevelopment of the Facility.
14. The FO may dispose of the Storer’s Goods in the event that Goods are damaged due
to fire, flood or other event that has rendered Goods, in the reasonable opinion of the FO
severely damaged, or dangerous to the Facility, any persons, or other Storers and/or their
Goods. Where practicable, the FO will provide the Storer with reasonable Notice and an
opportunity to review the Goods before the Goods are disposed of.
15. The Storer acknowledges that it has raised with the FO all queries relevant to its decision
to enter this Agreement and that the FO has, prior to the Storer entering into this Agreement,
answered all such queries to the satisfaction of the Storer. The Storer acknowledges that any
matters resulting from such queries have, to the extent required by the Storer and agreed to
by the FO, been reduced to writing and incorporated into the terms of this Agreement.
RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY:
16. The FO’s services come with non-excludable guarantees under consumer protection
law, including that they will be provided with due care and skill. Otherwise, to the extent
permitted by law, the Goods are stored at the sole risk and responsibility of the Storer who
shall be responsible for any and all theft, damage to, and deterioration of the Goods, and
shall bear the risk of any and all damage caused by flood or fire or leakage or overflow of
water, mildew, heat, spillage of material from any other space, removal or delivery of the
Goods, pest or vermin or any other reason whatsoever.
17. Where loss, damage or injury is caused by the Storer, the Storer’s actions or the Storer’s
Goods, the Storer agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the FO from all claims for any
loss of or damage to the property of, or personal injury to or death of the Storer, the Facility,
the FO or third parties resulting from or incidental to the use of the Space by the Storer,
including but not limited to the storage of Goods in the Space, the Goods themselves and/or
accessing the Facility.
18. Certain laws may apply to the storage of goods including criminal, bankruptcy,
liquidation and others. The Storer acknowledges and agrees to comply with all relevant
laws, including Acts and Ordinances, Regulations, By-laws, and Orders, as are or may be
applicable to the use of the Space. This includes laws relating to the material which is stored,
and the manner in which it is stored. Such liability and responsibility rests with the Storer,
and includes any and all costs resulting from such a breach.
19. If the FO reasonably believes that the Storer is not complying with any relevant laws
the FO may take any action as it reasonably believes to be necessary, including the action
outlined in clauses 21 & 23, contacting, cooperating with and/or submitting Goods to the
relevant authorities, and/or immediately disposing of or removing the Goods at the Storer’s
expense. No failure or delay by the FO to exercise its rights under this Agreement will
operate to waive those rights.
INSPECTION AND ENTRY BY THE FO:
20. Subject to clause 21 the Storer consents to inspection and entry of the Space by the FO
provided that the FO gives 14 days Notice.
21. In the event of an emergency, that is where obliged to do so by law or in the event that
property, the environment or human life is, in the reasonable opinion of the FO, threatened,
the FO may enter the Space using all necessary force without the consent of the Storer, but
the FO shall thereafter notify the Storer as soon as practicable. The Storer consents to such
entry.
22. NOTICE: Notice will usually be given by email or SMS, or otherwise will be left at,
or posted to, or faxed to the address of the Storer. In relation to the giving of Notice by the
Storer to the FO, Notice must be in writing and actually be received to be valid, and the FO
may specify a required method. In the event of not being able to contact the Storer, Notice
is deemed to have been given to the Storer by the FO if the FO has sent Notice to the last
notified address or has sent Notice via any other contact method, including by SMS or email
to the Storer or the ACP without any electronic ‘bounce back’ or similar notification. In the
event that there is more than one Storer, Notice to or by any single Storer is agreed to be
sufficient for the purposes of any Notice requirement under this Agreement
23. TERMINATION: Once the initial fixed period of storage has ended, either party
may terminate this Agreement by giving the other party Notice of the Termination Date
in accordance with period indicated on the front of this Agreement. In the event of any
activities reasonably considered by the FO to be illegal or environmentally harmful on the
part of the Storer the FO may terminate the Agreement without Notice. The FO is entitled
to retain or charge apportioned storage fees if less than the requisite Notice is given by the
Storer. The Storer must remove all Goods in the Space before the close of business on the
Termination Date and leave the Space in a clean condition and in a good state of repair to
the satisfaction of the FO. In the event that Goods are left in the Space after the Termination
Date, clause 8 will apply. The Storer must pay any outstanding Storage Fees and any
expenses on default or any other moneys owed to the FO up to the Termination Date, or
clauses 6, 7 or 8 may apply. Any calculation of the outstanding fees will be by the FO. If
the FO enters the Space for any reason and there are no Goods stored therein, the FO may
terminate the Agreement without giving prior Notice, but the FO will send Notice to the
Storer within 7 days.
24. The Parties’ liability for outstanding moneys, property damage, personal injury,
environmental damage and legal responsibility under this Agreement continues to run
beyond the termination of this Agreement.
25. SEVERANCE If any clause, term or provision of this Agreement is legally
unenforceable or is made inapplicable, or in its application would breach any law, that
clause, term or provision shall be severed or read down, but so as to maintain (as far as
possible) all other terms of the Agreement.
