11.5.1. Notwithstanding section 11.5, during a cadastral renovation, the Minister may transfer, by gratuitous title, all or part of an immovable the value of which is less than $5,000 in favour of the owner of a lot contiguous to the immovable.
The Minister shall, if he obtains the written consent of the owner of the lot, authorize the land surveyor preparing the cadastral renovation plan to enter that owner as the owner of the immovable.
Transfer of ownership is effected by the opening of a land file in the land register by the registrar.
The Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables (chapter D-15.1) and sections 28 and 29 of the Act to preserve agricultural land (chapter P-41.1) do not apply to the transfer of an immovable by gratuitous title by the Minister pursuant to this section.
