The contractor can carry out unforeseen works without prior consent from the employer if their urgency prevented obtaining such consent. Unforeseen works are those that need to be undertaken to ensure the stability of the structure or to prevent damage and are caused by unexpected and significant natural conditions, the appearance of water, or other extraordinary and unforeseen events. The contractor is obliged to promptly inform the employer about these occurrences and the measures taken. The contractor is entitled to receive reasonable compensation for the unforeseen works that had to be performed. The employer may terminate the contract if the contracted price would have to be significantly increased as a result of these works, and they are obligated to promptly notify the contractor about it. In the event of contract termination, the employer is required to pay the contractor the corresponding portion of the price for the work already performed, as well as reasonable compensation for the incurred necessary expenses.
