it is incumbent upon [the buyer] to prove ...
Explanation:
That's how I understand the sentence. Anything else wouldn't make much sense.

verbleiben - remain, stay
[Muret-Sanders]
You can take that to say that it's up to the buyer (i.e. incumbent upon him)

HTH!

Someone cannot verify if someone has done (not done) something.


Explanation:
nachweisbar = verifiable
nachweisen = account for
verbleiben = remain

your text would then be something like this: "The buyer cannot verify if the seller has accrued damages caused by default."

Good luck!

burden of proof is on the buyer


Explanation:
Me again - looking back, I realize I gave you a somewhat incomplete answer (sorry 'bout that). The above (burden of proof) might possibly be another option for phrasing this, if it fits into your overall context.

It's up to the buyer (or it is incumbent upon him) to furnish proof that the seller did not incur damages from the default (or that the damages incurred from the default were smaller than what the seller claims).

That's really the only way this sentence makes any sense (the buyer would owe the selller money, and if payments are not on time or are not made at all, it's the seller who incurs damage. Thus it's up to the buyer to prove that the damage is not as severe as the seller might claim.)

Hope this helps...

...must furnish proof...


Explanation:
I understand it this way:

The buyer must furnish proof, that the seller did not incur any or a lesser damage through the default than the buyer.

See how this fits your context.
