English translation:redhibitory
Explanation:
The term "redhibitory defect" is a standard one in Anglo-American law. According to Black's, it is a "defect in an article sold, for whcih the seller may be compelled to take the article back; a defect against which the seller is bound to warrant."

(That last part simply means that the seller must provide a guarantee against the defect in question.)
