Appendix 2: Legal warranties 

Article L. 217-4 of the French Consumer Code 

The seller is obliged to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. He is also liable for defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, assembly instructions or installation when the latter was his responsibility under the contract or was carried out under his responsibility. 

Article L. 217-5 of the French Consumer Code 

The property conforms to the contract: 

Whether it is fit for the purpose ordinarily expected of similar goods and, if so : 

– 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; 

– it has the qualities that a Buyer may legitimately expect, having regard to the public statements made by the seller, by the producer or by his representative, particularly in advertising or labelling; 

Or if it presents the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the Buyer, brought to the attention of the Seller and accepted by the latter. 

Article L. 217-7 of the French Consumer Code 

Defects of conformity which appear within twenty-four months of delivery of the goods are presumed to have existed at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise. For goods sold second-hand, this period is six months. The seller may rebut this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the good or the alleged lack of conformity. 

Article L. 217-8 Consumer Code 

The Buyer is entitled to demand that the goods conform to the contract. He may not, however, contest conformity by invoking a defect of which he was aware or could not have been unaware when he entered into the contract. The same applies when the defect is due to materials supplied by the Buyer. 

Article L. 217-9 Consumer Code  

In the event of a lack of conformity, the Buyer may choose between repair and replacement. However, the Vendor may not proceed according to the Purchaser’s choice if this choice entails a cost that is manifestly disproportionate to the other option, given the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. In this case, the Seller is obliged to proceed according to the method not chosen by the Buyer, unless this is impossible. 

Article L. 217-10 Consumer Code 

If repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the Buyer may return the good and have the price refunded, or keep the good and have part of the price refunded. The same option is available to him: 

1° If the solution requested, proposed or agreed in application of article L. 217-9 cannot be implemented within one month of the Buyer’s complaint; 

2° Or if this solution cannot be found without major inconvenience to the customer, given the nature of the good and the use he is seeking. 

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

Article L.217-11 of the French Consumer Code 

The application of the provisions of articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 is at no cost to the Buyer. These same provisions do not preclude the award of damages. 

Article L. 217-12 of the French Consumer Code 

Any action arising from a lack of conformity must be brought within two years of delivery of the goods. 

Article L. 217-16 of the French Consumer Code 

When the Buyer asks the Seller, during the term of the commercial warranty granted at the time of purchase or repair of a movable good, for a repair covered by the warranty, any period of immobilization of at least seven days is added to the remaining warranty period. This period runs from the date of the Buyer’s request for intervention, or from the date the item in question is made available for repair, if the item is made available after the request for intervention. 

Article 1641 of the French Civil Code 

The seller is liable for any hidden defects in the item sold which render it unsuitable for its intended use, or which impair this use to such an extent that the Buyer would not have purchased it, or would have paid a lower price for it, had he been aware of them. 

Article 1643 of the French Civil Code 

He is liable for hidden defects, even if he is unaware of them, unless he has stipulated that he will not be bound by any warranty. 

Article 1644 of the French 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 having part of the price refunded. 

Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the French Civil Code 

The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of discovery of the defect.
