25. The arbitration award shall be rendered by a majority of the members of the council of arbitration.
In its arbitration award, the council of arbitration may uphold or reduce the account in dispute. It shall also determine the reimbursement or payment to which a party may be entitled.
It may authorize the notary to collect the payment to which he is entitled out of the funds remitted to him in trust for and on behalf of the client.
The arbitration award shall be reasoned and signed by the single arbitrator or the majority arbitrators. Where an arbitrator refuses or is unable to sign, the others shall mention the fact and the award shall have the same effect as though signed by all.
