Definition : Majority

Number of co-owners votes required ( and sometimes the number of co-owners ) in order for a decision to be taken and for a resolution to be adopted by the general meeting of the co-owners. The Civil Code of  Québec provides many types of majority, depending on the importance of the decisions submitted to the co-owners vote. These majorities cannot be amended by the declaration of co-ownership.
