Article 382. Grounds and procedure for transferring the rights of a creditor to another person.

1. A right (claim) belonging to a creditor on the basis of an obligation may be transferred to it to another person in a transaction (assignment of a claim) or transferred to another person on the basis of a law. The rules on the transfer of creditor’s rights to another person do not apply to recourse claims. 2. To transfer the creditor’s rights to another person, the debtor’s consent is not required, unless otherwise provided by law or the contract. 3. If the debtor has not been notified in writing of the transfer of the creditor’s rights to another person, the new creditor bears the risk of the adverse consequences for it. In this case, the performance of the obligation to the original creditor is recognized as the performance of the appropriate creditor.
