Question 1 - Problem scenario

Brisbane Diamond Jewellery entered into a standard service agreement with Transglobal Alarm Monitoring Pty Ltd to provide security and alarm monitoring services for 5 years. From 2013 until 2017, the alarm and monitoring system was working fine and there was no incident of any security nature. On June 2017, the owner of Brisbane Diamond Jewellery went as usual to open his business and noticed that the alarm and monitoring system was not working properly and later found that many pieces of diamond Jewellery were missing and stolen from the shop. Unfortunately, Brisbane Diamond Jewellery had not insured its premises to cover lost property in the event of robbery.

The owner immediately contacted Transglobal Alarm Monitoring Pty Ltd and wrote formally to the manager demanding compensation for the failure of the alarming and monitoring system that resulted in the robbery. The manager replied back and advised that the company is not prepared to pay any compensation relying on the standard alarm agreement signed between the parties and particularly clause 10 that states the following: Transglobal Alarm Monitoring Pty Ltd and its employees will not under any circumstances be liable or responsible for any damage or loss that may be caused as a result of using the alarming and monitoring security system.

The owner of Brisbane Diamond Jellewery wants to take legal action agnist Transgloabl Alarm Monitoring Pty Ltd and you have been appointed to advise him on his chances of success.
