PYLONES is responsible for any compliance failures in the item sold, in accordance with articles L217-3 to L217-4 of the French Consumer Code, partially reproduced below.
Art. L. 217-4. “The seller delivers items in compliance with the contract and responds to existing compliance failures at the time of issue. The seller also responds to compliance failures resulting from packaging, assembly and installation instructions when these are their responsibility in the contract or have been carried out under their responsibility.”
Art. L 217-5. “The item complies with the contract: 1° If it is fit for the usage normally expected of a similar item and, if applicable: - if it matches the description provided by the seller and possesses the qualities that the seller has given the buyer, in the form of a sample or a model; - if it displays the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect with regard to public claims made by the seller, by the producer or by their representative, particularly in terms of advertising or labelling; 2° Or if it displays the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or is fit for any special usage researched by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.
Art. L. 217-12. “Action resulting from the compliance failure is limited to two years from when the item is delivered."
PYLONES is also legally required to guarantee against hidden defects under the conditions set out in articles 1641 to 1648 of the Civil Code, as well as article 2232 of the same code, partially reproduced below.
Art. 1641. “The seller is responsible for guaranteeing against all hidden defects in the item sold that could make it unsuitable for its intended usage, or that could compromise this usage, and that the buyer would not have purchased or would have paid less for, if they had known.”
Art. 1648 – paragraph 1. “The action resulting from latent defects must be brought by the buyer against the seller within two years from the moment the defect was discovered."
Art 2232 of the Civil Code: “Postponing the start date, or suspending or discontinuing the limitation period will result in the extension of the extinctive limitation period to over 20 (twenty) years from the date on which the entitlement arose. The first paragraph does not apply to the cases mentioned in articles 2226, 2227, 2233 and 2236, in the first paragraph of article 2241 and article 2244 . Neither does it apply to actions relating to the capacity of persons."
PYLONES thereby reminds the consumer that, under the legal compliance guarantee framework:
- the consumer has two years to bring any action, from the date on which the item was delivered;
- The consumer can choose to have the item either repaired or replaced, subject to the cost conditions laid out in article L. 217-9 of the Consumer Code “In the event of a compliance failure, the buyer can choose to have the item either repaired or replaced.” In any event, the seller cannot carry out the buyer’s wishes if their choice entails costs that are clearly disproportionate compared with the other option, given the value of the item or the extent of the defect. In such a situation, the seller must - unless impossible - proceed with the method not selected by the buyer. »
- The consumer must prove the existence of a compliance failure in the item in question in the 24 months after the item was delivered.
The consumer is also informed that the legal compliance guarantee applies independently of any commercial guarantee that might be offered. The consumer can also decide to exercise the guarantee against hidden defects in the item sold, as laid down in article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, they can choose to either cancel the sale or pay a reduced sale price in accordance with article 1644 of the Civil Code.
Claims and disputes will always be treated with the utmost attention.
In the first instance, you should write to PYLONES to obtain an amicable settlement, setting the facts out using the contact form.
