Article 1055. Obligation to pay a reward.
1. A person who has publicly announced the payment of a monetary reward or the issuance of another reward (reward payment) to the person who performs the lawful action specified in the announcement within the time specified therein is obliged to pay the promised reward to anyone who performed the corresponding action, in particular, found the lost thing or provided the person who announced the award with the required information. 2. The obligation to pay a reward arises provided that the promise of the reward allows you to establish by whom it is promised. A person who has responded to a promise is entitled to require written confirmation of the promise and bears the risk of the consequences of not making this demand, if it turns out that in fact the announcement of the award was not made by the person indicated in it. 3. If the public promise of the award does not indicate its size, it is determined by agreement with the person who promised the award, and in the event of a dispute by the court. 4. The obligation to pay a reward arises regardless of whether the corresponding action was taken in connection with the announcement made or independently of it. 5. In cases where the action specified in the announcement was performed by several persons, the right to receive the award is acquired by the one who committed the corresponding action first. If the action indicated in the announcement is performed by two or more persons and it is impossible to determine which of them performed the corresponding action first, and also if the action was performed by two or more persons at the same time, the reward is divided equally between them or in another agreement provided for between them size. 6. Unless otherwise provided in the announcement of the award and does not follow from the nature of the action indicated in it, the compliance of the performed action with the requirements contained in the announcement is determined by the person who publicly promised the award, and in the event of a dispute by the court.
