WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ! Article 1100 of the Civil Code of Quebec allows co-owners of contiguous private portions to alter the boundaries of their private portions, without it being necessary to obtain the majority provided for in article 1097 of the Civil Code of Quebec, provided they obtain the consent of their hypothecary creditors and of the syndicate. No alteration may increase or decrease the relative value of the group of private portions altered or the total of the voting rights attached to them.
