Consumer Code


Article L. 217-4: "The seller delivers a good in conformity with the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. The seller is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, assembly instructions, or installation if these were his responsibility under the contract or were carried out under his responsibility."


Article L. 217-5: "The good is in conformity with the contract:

1° If it is suitable for the normal use of a similar good and, where applicable:

- if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and possesses the qualities that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;

- if it has the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect given the public statements made by the seller, the producer, or his representative, particularly in advertising or labeling;

2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the seller's attention and accepted by him."


Article L. 217-6: "The seller is not bound by the public statements of the producer or his representative if it is established that he did not know them and could not reasonably have known them."


Article L. 217-7: "Defects of conformity that appear within a period of twenty-four months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise. For second-hand goods sold, this period is set at six months. The seller may challenge this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the goods or the lack of conformity alleged."


Article L. 217-8: "The buyer has the right to demand that the goods conform to the contract. However, he cannot contest conformity by invoking a defect that he knew or could not ignore when he entered into the contract. The same applies when the defect originates from the materials he supplied himself."


Article L. 217-9: "In case of lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repair and replacement of the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a manifestly disproportionate cost compared to the other option, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. In that case, the seller must proceed with the option not chosen by the buyer unless it is impossible."


Article L. 217-10: "If repair and replacement of the goods are impossible, the buyer may return the goods and have the price refunded or keep the goods and receive a part of the price. The same option is open to him: 1° If the solution requested, proposed, or agreed upon in accordance with Article L. 217-9 cannot be implemented within one month following the buyer's complaint; 2° Or if this solution cannot be done without major inconvenience to him given the nature of the goods and the use he seeks. However, the resolution of the sale cannot be pronounced if the lack of conformity is minor."


Article L. 217-11: "The application of the provisions of Articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 is done at no cost to the buyer. These same provisions do not preclude the award of damages."


Article L. 217-12: "The action resulting from lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the goods."


Article L. 217-13: "The provisions of this section do not deprive the buyer of the right to exercise the action resulting from latent defects as it results from Articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code or any other action of a contractual or extra-contractual nature recognized by law."


Article L. 217-14: "The recourse action may be exercised by the final seller against the successive sellers or intermediaries and the producer of the movable property, according to the principles of the Civil Code."


Article L. 217-15: "The commercial warranty refers to any contractual commitment of a professional to the consumer for the refund of the purchase price, replacement, or repair of the goods or the provision of any other service related to the goods, in addition to his legal obligations to guarantee conformity. The commercial warranty is entered into through a written contract, of which one copy is given to the buyer. The contract specifies the content of the warranty, the terms of its implementation, its price, its duration, its territorial scope, as well as the name and address of the guarantor. Furthermore, it clearly and precisely mentions that, independently of the commercial warranty, the seller remains responsible for the legal warranty of conformity provided for in Articles L. 217-4 to L. 217-12 and for defects in the thing sold, in the conditions provided for in Articles 1641 to 1648 and 2232 of the Civil Code. The provisions of Articles L. 217-4, L. 217-5, L. 217-12, and L. 217-16, as well as Article 1641 and the first paragraph of Article 1648 of the Civil Code, are fully reproduced in the contract. In case of non-compliance with these provisions, the warranty remains valid. The buyer has the right to invoke it."


Article L. 217-16: "When the buyer asks the seller, during the course of the commercial warranty granted at the time of acquisition or repair of a movable property, for a repair covered by the warranty, any period of immobilization of at least seven days is added to the duration of the warranty that was left. This period starts from the buyer's request or from the availability for repair of the goods in question if this availability is subsequent to the request."


Civil Code


Article 1641: "The seller is bound by the warranty on account of hidden defects of the thing sold which render it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would only have given a lesser price for it, if he had known of them."


Article 1648: "The action resulting from redhibitory vices must be brought by the purchaser within two years from the discovery of the vice. In the case provided for by Article 1642-1, the action must be brought, under penalty of foreclosure, within one year following the date on which the seller can be discharged from apparent vices or lack of conformity."
