ALL CLIENTS, POTENTIAL CLIENTS, APPLICANTS, LESSEES, MORTGAGORS AND VENDORS
Guardian Leasing Corp believes in sharing the credit & funding conditions with our clients. We advise Vendors (Suppliers, Dealers, Distributors & Manufacturers) in writing of the credit approval & funding conditions in our Credit Status Report (CSR). We also provide full disclosure (in writing) to any applicable mortgage related client. The Request for Invoice (RFI) contains the same funding terms & also a guideline on how Vendors should format their invoice. RFI’s are typically sent to Vendors (shall also mean “you” and “your”) when most Lease documentation has been signed by the Customer (or Lessee), but this documentation has not yet been reviewed, audited, or accepted by the lender. Credit adjudication is performed by the lender (shall also mean “funder” & “Lessor”). Lenders may request additional terms & conditions which may not be indicated in our CSR or initial disclosure to our financing customers, but must be received prior to funding. Vendors should seek legal advice to protect their interests when delivering their equipment to their Customer whether the Customer chooses to finance their equipment, or lease, or pay cash or be on certain payment terms. Vendors may wish to obtain a signed sales order, independently investigate the Customers credit, obtain asset & liability insurance, obtain deposits, condition your invoice that you are the owners of the equipment until paid in full, etc. Equipment ownership only passes to Lessor (or funder) when the Lessor accepts funds & commences the Lease agreement. Vendors, Clients and Applicants are advised that Guardian Leasing Corp. is a broker, not the lender nor the Lessor, nor a purchaser of the goods being sold to your Customer. You agree the lender indicated in the “Sold To” section of the RFI is solely responsible for all payments to the Vendor(s). For marketing reasons only, Guardian Leasing Corp. may be indicated as the Lessor on the Lease Agreement. Regardless of this fact, Vendors understand and agree that Guardian Leasing Corp. remains the broker & not the lender & will assign the lease to the lender. Should the lender not accept the Lease Assignment the lease will not be funded and Guardian Leasing Corp. will not be responsible for any payment to the Vendor(s). The CSR and RFI are not Purchase Orders and do not represent a funding commitment. Vendor agrees to accept clerical errors in the CSR or RFI without any recourse to GLC. Should the lender or Customer not pay the Vendor invoice, you agree Guardian Leasing Corp. will not be held liable for any costs to you or any party associated with the sale of the goods and that GLC has not requested you to order, manufacture or ship your goods. You & your Customer shall make your own exclusive equipment purchase, order and delivery arrangements & mutually conduct business at your own risk. Prior to funding, subject to lender (or Lessor) acceptance are, the final invoice(s), the Vendors credit (at lenders option), the Customers credit (if approval expired), verification the Customers initial payment has cleared or proof of payment is valid, that the Customer insured the goods & assigned the insurance to the lenders satisfaction, perform a verbal audit with the Customer (at lenders option) to ensure delivery, proper signing authority and lease acceptance. If multiple vendors on one lease all Vendors to deliver before any one is paid. If identical (“dual”) approvals are issued by a lender (or Lessor), only one is funded (which may not be the lenders approval that Guardian Leasing Corp had received). If ANY material change should occur to the Lessee, Client, Guarantors, Co-Lessees or Vendors at any time in the opinion of the lender, or if adverse credit information or events occur which creates additional risk to the lender prior to the signed acceptance of all Lease documents by the lender, then the lender is under no obligation to fund the Lease. Should any lender cease funding for financial reasons or unforeseen circumstances, Guardian Leasing Corp. as broker will not fund the lease or mortgage or factor or invoice. GLC does not perform credit adjudication on lenders, Customers, Agents, Brokers, Vendors or Co-brokers & is not responsible for their actions. Potential residential financing mortgage, factoring, equipment and vehicle leasing clients (applicants) understand and agree that the Lender may not fund their transaction based on their underwriting criteria and credit conditions and these same potential clients (applicants) furthermore agree to hold Guardian Leasing Corp harmless should the Lender or Underwriter not fund. Vendor warrants the equipment will comply with all warranties & representations made by you or your Agent to the Customer (or Lessee) or to the Lessor & that all such warranties & representations shall be fully enforceable by the Lessor, or by the Lessee in its own name, as the Lessors assignee. There are no other agreements either written or oral by the Vendor or its Agent(s), with any Guardian Leasing Corp. agent or the customer that may adversely affect the terms and conditions of the CSR, RFI, Factor or Lease. Potential mortgage clients (or Mortgagors) agree that there are NO agreements either written or oral with any Guardian Leasing Corp. agent that may adversely affect the terms and conditions of their mortgage documents.
