Article 612. The responsibility of the lessor for the shortcomings of the leased property.
1. The lessor is responsible for the shortcomings of the leased property that fully or partially impede the use of it, even if he was not aware of these shortcomings at the time of concluding the lease agreement.
If such defects are detected, the tenant has the right to choose:
to demand from the lessor either free elimination of the defects of the property, or a commensurate reduction of the rent, or reimbursement of their expenses for the elimination of the defects of the property;
directly withhold the amount of expenses incurred by them to eliminate these deficiencies from the rent, having previously notified the lessor of this;
demand early termination of the contract.
The lessor, informed about the tenant’s claims or his intention to eliminate the defects of the property at the expense of the lessor, can immediately replace the property provided to the tenant with other similar property in proper condition or free of charge to eliminate the defects of the property.
If the satisfaction of the tenant’s claims or the withholding of expenses for the elimination of defects from the rent does not cover the losses caused to the tenant, he is entitled to demand compensation for the uncovered part of the losses.
2. The lessor is not responsible for the shortcomings of the leased property, which they agreed upon when concluding the lease agreement or were known in advance to the tenant or should have been discovered by the tenant during the inspection of the property or verification of its serviceability when concluding the agreement or leasing the property.
