BGB (Germany) § 254. 275 (1) If fault on the aggrieved party’s behalf has contributed to the occurrence of the loss, the duty to pay damages and the amount of damages depends on the circumstances, in particular on the extent to which the loss has been caused by one party or the other. (2) [. . .]
§ 326. 276 (1) [. . .] (2) If the obligee is solely or overwhelmingly responsible for the circumstance releasing the obligor from the need to perform pursuant to § 275 (1) to (3), or if the obligor is not responsible for that circumstance and this occurs at a time when the obligee is in default through non-acceptance, the obligor retains his claim for counter-performance. He must, however, allow a deduction for whatever he saves as a result of release from performance, he acquires through the utilisation of his labour elsewhere, or he maliciously fails to acquire. (3)–(5) [. . .]
Art. 44.
