Article 896. Remuneration for storage.
1. Remuneration for storage should be paid to the custodian at the end of storage, and if storage is provided for periods, it should be paid in appropriate parts at the end of each period. 2. In case of delay in payment of remuneration for storage of more than half the period for which it should be paid, the depositary has the right to refuse to perform the contract and require the depositor to immediately pick up the thing deposited. 3. If storage is terminated before the expiration of the stipulated period due to circumstances for which the custodian is not responsible, he shall have the right to a proportionate part of the remuneration, and in the case provided for by paragraph 1 of Article 894 of this Code, the full amount of remuneration. If the storage is terminated ahead of time due to circumstances for which the custodian is responsible, he shall not have the right to demand remuneration for storage, and must return the amounts received on account of this remuneration to the bailor. 4. If at the expiration of the storage period the stored item is not taken back by the bailor, he shall be obliged to pay the custodian a reasonable remuneration for the further storage of the item. This rule applies in the case when the depositor is obliged to pick up the thing before the expiration of the storage period. 5. The rules of this Article shall apply unless otherwise provided by the contract of storage.
