43. A judge may, on the application of the seizor, authorize the sale of the thing seized if it is perishable or likely to depreciate rapidly.
At least one clear day’s prior notice of the application must be served on the person from whom the thing was seized and on the persons who claim to have a right in the thing. However, the judge may exempt the seizor from service if deterioration of the thing is imminent.
The conditions of the sale are determined by the judge. The proceeds of the sale are deposited with the Bureau général de dépôts pour le Québec.
