Redhibition in Louisiana
The concept of redhibition dates back to the Louisiana Civil Code of 1870. While the law has changed over the years, Louisiana redhibition statutes offer a legal remedy for consumers who purchased a defective automobile, watercraft, or recreational vehicle. There are certain situations that make a defect redhibitory.
A defect is redhibitory when:
- It renders the vehicle useless
- Diminishes the usefulness of the vehicle
- Reduces the value of the vehicle
- The inconvenience caused by the defect presumes that a buyer would not have purchased it or have paid the same price had he or she known about the defect
The existence of a defect under Louisiana redhibition statutes provides certain rights to the buyer. You may have the right to rescission of the sale or a reduction of the purchase price, in certain situations. In addition, you may be able to recover attorney fees and additional damages. The best thing to do is to consult with an experienced redhibition attorney in Louisiana to learn how the law applies to your situation.
