All costs and expenses of or incurred by the vendor as a result of any such action together with transportation and storage charges shall be payable by the buyer upon demand. Any suspension of the contract by the vendor shall not prevent it terminating the contract during the period of suspension. At any time after a default occurs, the vendor may (whether or not the vendor has exercised any other right) appoint any person to be a receiver of all or any of the Goods. In addition to, and without limiting or affecting any other powers and authorities conferred on a receiver (whether under the Receiverships Act 1993 or at law or otherwise), a receiver has the power to do all things in relation to the Goods as if the receiver has absolute ownership of the Goods.
