272.20. The municipality may, not later than 90 days following notification of the notice of intention to alienate, notify a notice to the owner of its intention to exercise its pre-emptive right and to acquire the immovable at the price and on the conditions stated in the notice of intention to alienate, subject to any modifications subsequently agreed on with the owner. If the notice of intention to alienate contains an estimate of the value of a non-monetary consideration, the price must be increased by an equal amount.
The municipality may, during that period, require from the owner any information allowing it to assess the condition of the immovable. It may also, after giving 48 hours’ prior notice, access the immovable to conduct, at its own expense, any study or analysis it considers useful.
If the municipality does not notify the notice provided for in the first paragraph to the owner within the 90-day period, it is deemed to have waived its pre-emptive right.
If the municipality decides not to exercise its pre-emptive right and the proposed alienation occurs, it shall have the notice of its pre-emptive right removed from the land register.
