(a) A limited partnership that has been administratively dissolved may apply to the secretary of state for reinstatement after the effective date of dissolution. The application must be delivered to the secretary of state for filing and state:
(1) the name of the limited partnership and the effective date of its administrative dissolution;
(2) that the grounds for dissolution either did not exist or have been eliminated; and
(3) that the limited partnership's name satisfies the requirements of section 321.0108.
The application must also include any documents that were required to be delivered for filing to the secretary of state but which were not so delivered.
(b) If the secretary of state determines that an application contains the information required by subsection (a) and that the information is correct and the application includes the appropriate fee, the secretary of state shall file the reinstatement application and serve the limited partnership with a copy.
(c) When reinstatement becomes effective, it relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the administrative dissolution and the limited partnership may resume its activities as if the administrative dissolution had never occurred, except that for the purposes of section 321.0103(c) and (d) the reinstatement is effective only as of the date the reinstatement is filed.
