5. No notary may institute an action on account until expiry of the 45-day period following receipt of the account by the client.
Similarly, no notary may institute an action on account where an application for conciliation is made within the 45-day period and the dispute can be settled by conciliation or arbitration.
However, the conciliator may authorize the notary to proceed with the action where there is reason to believe that failure to institute an action will jeopardize recovery of the claim. The notary may also apply for provisional measures in accordance with article 623 of the Code of Civil Procedure (chapter C-25.01).
