Sums Due to the Association for the Purpose of Application of the Rules on Cancellation
A. For the purpose of determining whether any (and, if so, what) sum is due for the purposes of Rule 31 (A) or otherwise under these Rules no account shall be taken of any amount due or alleged to be due by the Associations to the Owner on any ground whatever, and no set-off of any kind (including set-off which might otherwise have arisen by reason of the bankruptcy or winding up of the Owner) shall be allowed against such sum (whether or not any set-off against contributions has been allowed at any time in the past), except to the extent (if any) to which any sum demanded by the Managers as due, and required to be paid in a notice served under the said sub-paragraph, may (in the Managers’ discretion) in itself have already allowed for a set-off or credit in favour of the Owner.
B. Without prejudice to the generality of Rule 39 no act, omission, course of dealing, forbearance, delay or indulgence of any kind by or on behalf of the Association nor the granting of time, nor the acceptance by the Association (whether express or implied) of liability for, or the recognition of, any claim, and whether occurring before or after any date of cessation or date of cancellation as hereinbefore referred to shall derogate from the effect of Rules 28 to 33 inclusive or be treated as any waiver of any of the Association’s rights thereunder.
