5. RISK AND TITLE
5.1 All risk in Products passes to you on delivery. Delivery occurs:
(a) where we deliver the Products to the delivery address, when the Products are unloaded at the delivery address; or
(b) where you nominate to arrange for the Products to be collected from a King Living warehouse or showroom, just prior to the Products being loaded onto transportation at the King Living warehouse.
5.2 You acknowledge that the Risk and Title provisions set out above create a security interest (as defined in the Personal Property Securities Act 1999 ("PPSA")) in all Products that have not been paid for in full. You agree that you will, at King Living’s request, promptly execute any documents, provide all necessary information and do anything else required by us to ensure that the security interest is perfected in accordance with the PPSA with such priority as King Living requires, including executing any variations to these Terms.
5.3 You waive your rights under the PPSA to receive a copy of any verification statement otherwise required by the PPSA. If applicable, so far as permitted by section 107 of the PPSA you agree that you will have no rights under sections 114, 116, 120, 121, 125, 126, 127, 129 and 131 and 133 of the PPSA, including the right to receive any notices. You agree, if applicable, that King Living may exercise its rights under sections 109 and 120 concurrently, and that repossession and retention of goods under sections 120-123 will immediately extinguish any rights and/or interests you may have in the Products and that King Living may allocate any monies it receives to debts, charges and expenses in any priority it determines.

You are responsible for ensuring there is adequate access and entry to the premises at the delivery address to allow for the delivery and layout of the Products. We cannot deliver to PO Boxes as you must be available in person to accept the delivery of your order.
6.4 Products will only be delivered if a person aged over 18 years and who is able to accept delivery is present at the delivery address at the time of delivery. Should:
(a) an appropriate person not be available to accept delivery on the pre-arranged delivery date and time; or
(b) there be no space available to lay out the Products at the delivery address,
and delivery cannot be made, a card will be left and you will be responsible for organising collection or redelivery of the Products. You may also be charged for transport, re-delivery, storage and removal of existing furniture, whichever is applicable to your circumstances.
