Article L 217-9 of the Consumer Code: In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between the repair and the replacement of the good. However, the seller may not proceed according to the choice of the buyer if this choice entails a manifestly disproportionate cost with regard to the other method, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect. He is then required to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer.

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

Article L 217-11 of the Consumer Code: The application of the provisions of articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 takes place at no cost to the buyer. These same provisions do not preclude the award of damages.

Article L 217-16 of the Consumer Code: When the buyer asks the seller, during the course of the commercial guarantee which was granted to him during the acquisition or repair of movable property, a restoration covered by the guarantee, any period of immobilization of at least seven days is added to the duration of the guarantee which remained to run. This period runs from the request for intervention by the buyer or the provision for repair of the property in question, if this provision is subsequent to the request for intervention.

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

Article 1644 of the Civil Code: In the case of articles 1641 and 1643 , the buyer has the choice of returning the item and having the price refunded, or keeping the item and getting part of the price refunded.

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

When acting as a legal guarantee of conformity, the Customer:

  • has a period of 2 years from the delivery of the property to act;

  • can choose between repairing or replacing the good, subject to the cost conditions provided for in article L 217-9 of the Consumer Code;

  • is exempted from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods during the 24 months following the delivery of the goods.

The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of the commercial guarantee granted by Verpal.
