  1. Payment made in error, or simply to avoid prejudice to the one who makes it by protesting that he owes nothing, obliges the one who received it to return it.

However, there is no need for restitution when, as a result of the payment, the person who has received it in good faith now has a prescribed debt, has destroyed his title or has deprived himself of a security, except the recourse of the one who paid against the true debtor.

1991, c. 64, a. 1491.

  1. The restitution of what has been unduly paid is made according to the rules of the restitution of services.
