Article 255. Claim on share in common property.
A lender of a participant in common or joint ownership, if the owner of other property is insufficient, has the right to file a claim for separation of the debtor’s share in the common property for recourse to it. If in such cases it is not possible to allocate a share in kind or the remaining participants of shared or joint ownership object, the creditor is entitled to demand that the debtor sells his share to the remaining participants in common ownership at a price commensurate with the market value of this share, with the proceeds from the sale of the debt repaying. In the event of the refusal of the remaining participants in common property to acquire the debtor’s share, the creditor is entitled to demand that the court seize the debtor’s share in the common property right by selling this share at public auction.
