MONTREAL - Disgraced senator Patrick Brazeau has until today, (Friday) to leave his Gatineau, Que., home and hand the keys over to his bank.

A judge in Gatineau authorized the seizure of Brazeau's home July 29. Brazeau has owned the property with ex-girlfriend Sunshine Tenasco since 2005. The couple had already received a notice from the Bank of Nova Scotia demanding they leave the home last January, but according to court documents they wouldn't "voluntarily quit the residence."

The bank is trying to recoup $189,778.18, which is the amount left on Brazeau's mortgage, as well as an additional $11,237.54 from another loan. According to the city of Gatineau, the home is valued at $240,300.

The bank isn't the only one looking to recoup funds.

One of the biggest losers could be Revenue Quebec, which filed a legal mortgage of $ 180,896 on the same house last May. This covers Brazeau's unpaid taxes from 2004 to 2008 and again in 2011 and 2012.

"In this case, Revenue Quebec is not the first creditor," spokesman Géneviève Laurier said. "If the first creditor exercises its right, the mortgage Revenue Quebec has will have no legal value. -CP-
