Definition : Deadlock in decision-making

Total inability to carry out a vote due in particular to a tie of the votes of the co-owners.  Article 1103.1 of the Civil Code of Quebec states the  following: Where the co-owners are prevented from acting as a majority or in the specified proportion owing to an impediment or the systematic opposition of some of them, the court may, on the application of a co-owner, make any order it sees fit in the circumstances.This section was introduced into the Civil Code of Québec in December 2019 by Bill 16. This addition makes it possible to resolve certain situations of blockages in decision-making within the co-ownership.
