41-2177. Renewal of licenses; license status

A. Licenses issued under this article shall expire one year from the date of issuance. An application for renewal of any current license with evidence of a valid bond or cash deposit when accompanied by the required fee and received by the deputy director before the expiration date shall authorize the licensee to operate until actual issuance of the renewal license for the ensuing year.

B. A license which expires may be reactivated and renewed within one year of its expiration by filing the required renewal application, signed by the licensee or qualifying party for a business licensee, evidence of a valid bond and payment of a fee of one hundred twenty-five per cent of the amount required for that license class. When a license has been expired for more than one year for failure to renew, a new application for license shall be made and a new license issued pursuant to this article. If the license has been expired for more than one year, the fee required shall be two hundred per cent of the fee required for that license class.

C. An applicant for renewal of a license issued pursuant to this article shall not be required to take a written examination.

D. A license is not transferable. Any change in the legal entity of a licensee that includes any change in the ownership of a sole proprietorship or a partner of a partnership or in the creation of a new corporate entity requires a new license.

E. A license may be cancelled on the written request of the owner of a sole proprietorship, a partner of a partnership or, in the case of a corporation, any person with written evidence of his authority to request the cancellation. A salesperson's license may be cancelled on the written request of the salesperson. The director may refuse to accept voluntary cancellation of a license if good cause may exist for disciplinary action.

F. If possible, the licensee shall notify the director in writing of the disassociation of a qualifying party before the action, and in any event no later than five business days after the action. The licensee shall also notify the director as to who will be temporarily responsible for the operation of the business. The absence of a written designated qualifying party for sixty days is grounds for suspension of the license. If a person ceases to be the qualifying party for a licensee, the person shall notify the office within five days.

G. An application for a new qualifying party shall include the completion of the prescribed forms, fingerprints and testing, if applicable, in accordance with sections 41-2175 and 41-2176.

H. A licensee may request the deputy director, on forms prescribed by the deputy director, to inactivate the licensee's current license for a period of not more than two years. In the absence of any disciplinary proceeding or disciplinary suspension and on payment of reasonable fees determined by the board the deputy director may issue an inactive license certificate to the licensee if the licensee has turned in his license. The inactive license certificate may consist of an endorsement on the licensee's license stating that the license is inactive. The deputy director may not refund any of the license renewal fee which a licensee paid before requesting inactive status. A licensee's license which is not suspended or revoked and is inactive shall be reactivated as an active license on payment of the current year's renewal fee and thirty days' written notice to the deputy director. No examination may be required to reactivate an inactive license. If the license is not reactivated within two years, a new application for licensing must be made and the new license issued pursuant to this chapter. No licensee may inactivate the license more than once. The holder of an inactive license shall not work as a licensee until his license is reactivated as an active license. The inactive status of a licensee's license does not bar any disciplinary action by the deputy director against a licensee for any of the grounds stated in this chapter.
