Guarantee of hidden defects

Article 1641 of the Civil Code: the seller is bound by the guarantee for hidden defects in the item sold which make it unfit for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would only have paid a lower price for it, if he had known about them.

Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code: the action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect.

Legal guarantee of conformity

Article L 2171-4 of the French Consumer Code: the seller delivers goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery.

Article L. 217-9 of the Consumer Code: In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer may choose between repairing or replacing the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other option, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. In this case, the seller is obliged to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer.

Article L 217-10 of the Consumer Code: If repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the buyer may return the good and have the price returned or keep the good and have part of the price returned.

The same option is open to him:

2 - Or if this solution cannot be implemented without major inconvenience for the buyer, given the nature of the goods and the use he is seeking.

However, the sale may not be cancelled if the lack of conformity is minor.

Article L. 217-11 of the Consumer Code: the application of the provisions of Articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 shall take place at no cost to the buyer. These same provisions do not prevent the award of damages.
