It is this difference which means that the legal guarantee can now be applied correctly. The lack of conformity which appears within a period of twenty-four months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise.

For second-hand goods sold, this period is set at six months.

The seller can challenge this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the goods or the lack of conformity invoked . “
