1. In cases where, in accordance with this Code or other laws for the party to which the offer is sent (draft contract), the contract is required to be entered into, this party must send the other party a notice of acceptance, or of refusal of acceptance, or of acceptance of the offer for other conditions (protocol of disagreements to the draft agreement) within thirty days from the date of receipt of the offer. The party that submitted the offer and received from the party for which the conclusion of the contract is mandatory, notice of its acceptance on other conditions (protocol of disagreements to the draft contract) has the right to transfer the differences arising during the conclusion of the contract to the court within thirty days from the date of receipt of such notice or expiration of acceptance. 2. In cases where, in accordance with this Code or other laws, the conclusion of a contract is mandatory for the party that submitted the offer (draft contract), and a protocol of disagreements to the draft contract will be sent to it within thirty days, this party is obliged within thirty days from the day receiving the protocol of disagreements, notify the other party about the acceptance of the agreement in its edition or about the rejection of the protocol of disagreements. When a protocol of disagreements is rejected or a notification is not received on the results of its consideration within a specified period, the party that sent the protocol of disagreements has the right to submit the disagreements arising during the conclusion of the contract to the court. 3. The rules on deadlines provided for by paragraphs 1 and 2 of this article shall apply, unless other periods are established by law, other legal acts, or not agreed by the parties. 4. If a party for which, in accordance with this Code or other laws, the conclusion of a contract is mandatory, evades its conclusion, the other party has the right to apply to the court forcing him to conclude an agreement. The party unreasonably refusing to conclude a contract must compensate the other party for the damages caused.
