Vereinbarung über Eigentumsvorbehalt

  1. 1.   Die gelieferte Ware bleibt bis zur vollständigen Bezahlung sämtlicher Forderungen aus der Geschäftsverbindung zwischen uns und dem Besteller unser Eigentum (Vorbehaltsware).

  2. 2.   Der Besteller ist berechtigt, die Vorbehaltsware zu veräussern oder anderweitig darüber zu verfügen, sofern dies in seinem Betrieb zu den normalen Geschäften gehört. Eine Verpfändung, Sicherheitsübereignung oder Sicherungsabretung ist ihm nicht gestattet. Der Besteller is verpflichtet, unsere Rechte als Vorbehaltseigentümer beim Weiterverkauf von Vorbehaltsware auf Kredit zu sichern. Die dem Besteller aus der Weiterveraüsserung oder sonstigen Verfügung über die Vorbehalts- ware entstehende Forderung tritt der Besteller schon jetzt an uns ab, wir nehmen die Abtretung schon jetzt an.

  3. 3.   Eine etwaige Be- und Verarbeitung der Vorbehaltsware nimmt der Besteller für uns vor, ohne dass für uns daraus Verpflichtungen entstehen. Bei Verarbeitung, Verbindung, Vermischung oder Vermengung der Vorbehaltsware mit anderen, nicht uns gehörenden Waren steht uns der dabei entstehende. Miteigentumsanteil an der neuen Sache im Verhältnis des Rechnungswertes der Vorbehaltsware zu den übrigen Waren zu. Erwirbt der Besteller Alleineigentum an der neuen Sache, räumt er uns das Miteigentum ein und verwahrt die Sache unentgeltlich für uns. Wird die Vorbehalts-ware zusammen mit Vorbehaltswaren anderer Lieferanten weiterveräussert, und zwar gleich, ob ohne oder nach Verarbeitung, Verbindung, Vermischung oder Vermengung, so gilt die oben vereinbarte Vorausabtretung nur in Höhe des Rechnungswertes unserer Vorbehaltsware, die zusammen mit den anderen Vorbehaltswaren weiterveräussert wird.

  4. 4.   Zur Sicherung unserer Forderungen gegen den Besteller tritt uns der Besteller auch solche Forderungen ab, die ihm durch die Verbundung des Liefergegenstandes mit einem Grundstück gegen einen Dritten erwachsen; wir nehmen diese Abtretung schon jetzt an. 

  5. 5.   Bei Zahlungsrückstand oder anderem vertragswidrigen Verhalten des Bestellers sind wir auch ohne vorherige Fristsetzung berechtigt, von dem Vertrag zurüchzutreten und die Vorbehaltsware zurückzunehmen; der Besteller ist zur Herausgabe verpflichtet. Zwecks Zurücknahme der Ware gestattet uns der Besteller unwiderruflich, seine Geschäfts- und Lagerräume ungehindert zu betreten und die Vorbehaltsware mitzunehmen. In einer solchen Zurücknahme der Vorbehaltsware liegt kein Rücktritt vom Vertrag, es sei denn, wir erklären dies schriftlich.
