The professional keeper is responsible for the loss, shortage or damage of things, if he does not prove that the loss, shortage or damage occurred due to force majeure, or due to the properties of things that the keeper, taking it for storage, did not know and should not have known either as a result of intent or gross negligence of the depositor. 2. For the loss, shortage, or damage of items accepted for storage after the depositor’s obligation to return these items (clause 1 of Article 899), the custodian is only responsible if he has intent or gross negligence.
