Article 406. Delay of a creditor.

1. A creditor is deemed delayed if he refused to accept the proper performance proposed by the debtor or did not perform the actions provided for by law, other legal acts or contract, or arising from business practice or from the substance of the obligation, before which the debtor could not fulfill his obligation. The lender is also deemed delayed in the cases specified in paragraph 2 of Article 408 of this Code. 2. The delay of the creditor gives the debtor the right to compensation for damages caused by the delay, if the creditor does not prove that the delay occurred due to circumstances for which neither he himself nor those whose responsibility for the execution of the act was imposed by law, other legal acts or the creditor’s order , do not respond. 3. For a monetary obligation, the debtor is not obliged to pay interest for the period of delay of the creditor.
