All members must strictly adhere to the terms and conditions of the bills of sale or mortgages wherever applicable, failure to do so would result in the FPSCU exercising its powers of mortgagee sale under the mortgage and/or repossession under Bill of sale Pursuant to Demand and/or suing the member for recovery of the balance outstanding, costs of which are to be borne by the member.
    7. The Credit Committee may reduce the amount of loan you apply for or decide the rate and the period within which the loan should be repaid, and the FPSCU reserves the right to review your account and demand a higher rate of repayment, as necessary.
