A licensee whose fully completed renewal application has been properly and timely filed and who has not received a notice of denial of renewal is considered to have been approved for renewal and may continue to transact business whether or not the renewed license has been received. Applications are timely if received by March 1 of the renewal year. Applications must be made on a form approved by the commissioner. An application for renewal that does not contain all of the information requested is an incomplete application and will not be processed.
Any license issued or renewed after August 1, 1993, must be renewed annually except for a manufactured home installer's license which shall have a renewal period of three years, effective for all renewals and new licenses issued after December 31, 2008.
A person who has failed to make a timely application for renewal of a license is unlicensed at 11:59:59 p.m. central time on March 31 of the renewal year and remains unlicensed until a renewed license has been issued by the commissioner and is received by the applicant.
All licenses expire at 11:59:59 p.m. central time on March 31 of the renewal year if not properly renewed.
