The Purchaser hereby irrevocably gives La-Z-Boy Australia Pty Limited, its agents and servants, the free and uninterrupted right to enter any premises occupied by the Purchaser during normal business hours, to search for, inspect and remove any of the goods supplied in which La-Z-Boy Australia Pty Limited has retained ownership pursuant to this clause if:
(i) the Purchaser is in default of payment in respect of the goods or;

g. La-Z-Boy Australia Pty Limited shall at any time have the power to appropriate payments to such goods and accounts as it thinks fit, notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Purchaser to the contrary.
h. If one or more of the provisions or part of any provision in this clause creates or is held to create a charge, it shall not affect the enforceability of the other provisions or other part of any provision in this clause, and shall be severed from this clause so that the remaining provisions or other part of any provision of this clause shall remain enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
