3.3 You must buy back Rello’s Share of the Sale Proceeds immediately by paying Rello Rello’s Share of the Sale Proceeds if the Contract is terminated, rescinded or materially varied.

Upon Rello’s receipt of that payment, Rello will return the right to you.
3.5 If you agree to a new Contracted Settlement Date that is later than the Buy Back Date, Rello may extend the Buy Back Date to be the new Contracted Settlement Date. You agree to pay an extension fee of 1.5% of Rello’s Share of the Sale Proceeds for each additional 30 days or part thereof by which the Buy Back Date is extended.
