(s. 23)
(1) Fees of $91 are payable for the publication of a notice of sale of movable property.
(2) Fees of $756 are payable for the publication of a notice of sale of immovable property.
(3) No fees are payable for the following services:
(a) the publication of a notice related to a notice of sale or a notice of completed sale previously published;
(b) consultation of the register.
However, fees of $202 per application are payable for the issue of a statistical report.
(4) The fees prescribed by this tariff are adjusted in accordance with section 83.3 of the Financial Administration Act (chapter A-6.001). However, the fees are not adjusted when they have been set or increased in the previous year otherwise than under that section.
The result of the adjustment is reduced to the nearest dollar where it contains a fraction of a dollar less than $0.50; it is increased to the nearest dollar where it contains a fraction of a dollar equal to or greater than $0.50.The application of this rounding rule may not operate to decrease the fees below their pre-adjustment level.
If an adjusted amount cannot be rounded up to the nearest dollar, the annual adjustments are deferred and accumulated until the fees payable include a dollar fraction that is equal to or greater than $0.50.
The Minister publishes the results of the adjustment in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
