Chapter Summary

This chapter on causes of obligation contains several articles concerning the general provisions, unjust enrichment, negotiorum gestio and unilateral promise. A person who, without legal cause, obtains inappropriate profits and causes another person damages shall return the unjust profits to the injured person. A person who voluntarily makes performance because of the moral or social obligation shall not claim for the return thereof. A person who, without the legal or agreed obligation, manages or serves another's property or another person in order to prevent the other person's benefit from being injured can claim for the necessary cost. If an advertisement announces that a certain reward will be given to a person who performs or completely completes certain conduct, the advertiser shall be responsible for paying the reward to the person who performs or completely completes the conduct.
