Is this house there matrimonial home?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know what matrimonial home mean (my main language is French), but the couple does not live there and the house is situated in Montreal (Quebec). The couple lives in British Columbia, while the house that is going to be sold is in Montreal (Quebec). Thanks.

There is no need for the spouse to consent. That consent is only needed if the spouses like in the house as their home. That is not the case here and so no consent at all is needed.Let me know if you need any further clarification.

Actually, I need a proof (the section of the law, or at least, a court decision) saying that according to their matrimonial regime of 1983, they can sell the house without the consent of their spouse. Thanks.

I am not able to provide the law unfortunately. You will need to consult with a local lawyer if you want more than general legal information about Quebec. There are no lawyers from Quebec that are active on this site right now.

I'm not asking about the section of Quebec's law, I'm asking about the British Columbia's laws... ...which you should be able to provide me...
