(b)  or avail himself of the clause of forfeiture of benefit of the term prescribed in this contract.
Before availing himself of that clause, the merchant must forward the consumer a notice in writing and a statement of account. Within 30 days following the receipt by the consumer of the notice and the statement of account, the consumer may:

ii.  or present an application to the court to have the terms and conditions of payment prescribed in this contract changed;
iii.  or present an application to the court to obtain permission to return the goods that form the object of the contract to the merchant.
If the consumer returns the goods to the merchant with the permission of the court, his obligation under this contract is extinguished and the merchant is not bound to return to him the payments he has received from him;
(c)  or retake possession of the goods that form the object of the contract.
Before retaking possession of the goods, the merchant must give the consumer a notice in writing 30 days during which the consumer may, as he chooses:
i.  either remedy the fact that he is in default;
ii.  or return the goods to the merchant.
If the consumer returns the goods to the merchant, his obligation under this contract is extinguished and the merchant is not bound to return to him the payments he has received from him.
If, before his default, the consumer has paid at least one-half of the aggregate of the total obligation and of the down payment, the merchant may not recover possession of the goods unless he first obtains the permission of the court.
It is in the consumer’s interest to refer to sections 104 to 110 and 138 to 142 of the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1) and, where necessary, to communicate with the Office de la protection du consommateur.”.
