Article 720. Acceptance by the customer of the work performed by the contractor.

1. The customer is obliged to inspect and accept the work done (its result) with the contractor’s participation, in the terms and in the manner prescribed by the contract, and upon detection of derogations from the contract worsening the result of work or other shortcomings in the work, immediately inform the contractor. 2. The customer, who discovered defects in the work when accepting it, has the right to refer to them in cases if the act or other document certifying the acceptance specified these deficiencies or the possibility of subsequent presentation of a request for their elimination. 3. Unless otherwise provided by the contract agreement, the customer who accepted the work without verification is deprived of the right to refer to the shortcomings of the work that could have been established with the usual method of its acceptance (obvious shortcomings). 4. The customer who found after accepting the work of withdrawal from the contract or other defects that could not be identified with the usual method of acceptance (hidden defects), including those that were deliberately hidden by the contractor, is obliged to notify the contractor of a reasonable term on their detection. 5. If a dispute arises between the customer and the contractor about the shortcomings of the work performed or their reasons, an expert examination should be appointed at the request of either party. Expenses for the examination shall be borne by the contractor, unless the examination has established that there is no violation by the contractor of a contract or causal link between the actions of the contractor and the defects found. In these cases, the costs of the examination shall be borne by the party who requested the appointment of the examination, and if it is appointed by agreement between the parties, both parties are equally. 6. Unless otherwise provided by the contract agreement, if the customer evades accepting the completed work, the contractor is entitled after one month from the date when according to the agreement the result of the work was to be transferred to the customer, and subject to a subsequent double warning to the customer to sell the result of the work, and the proceeds after deduction of all payments due to the contractor, make a deposit in the name of the customer in the manner provided for in Article 327 of this Code. 7. If the customer’s evasion from accepting the work performed resulted in a delay in the delivery of work, the risk of accidental death of the manufactured (processed or processed) thing is deemed to have passed to the customer at the time when the transfer of the thing was to take place.
