Article 1004. Refusal of the commissioner to execute the commission agreement.
1. The commission agent shall not have the right, unless otherwise provided by the agreement of the commission, to refuse to execute it, except for the case when the agreement is entered into without indicating the period of its validity. In this case, the commission agent must notify the principal of the termination of the contract no later than thirty days, if a longer period of notice is not provided for by the contract. The commission agent is obliged to take the measures necessary to ensure the safety of the property of the principal. 2. The committent shall dispose of his property under the jurisdiction of the commission agent within fifteen days from the date of receipt of the notification of the commission agent’s refusal to execute the order, unless a different period is specified in the contract of commission. If he fails to fulfill this obligation, the commission agent is entitled to deposit the property at the expense of the committent or sell it at the best possible price for the committent. 3. Unless otherwise provided by the contract of commission, the commissioner who refused to execute the order shall retain the right to commission remuneration for transactions made by him before the termination of the contract, as well as to reimbursement of expenses incurred up to this point.
