4763.06 Renewing certificate, license or registration.

(A) A person licensed, registered, or certified under this chapter may obtain a renewal certificate, registration, or license by filing a renewal application with and paying the renewal fee set forth in section 4763.09 of the Revised Code and any amount assessed pursuant to division (A)(2) of section 4763.05 of the Revised Code to the superintendent of real estate. The renewal application shall include a statement, signed by the certificate holder, registrant, or licensee, that the certificate holder, registrant, or licensee has not, during the immediately preceding twelve-month period, been convicted of or pleaded guilty to any criminal offense described in division (H)(2) of section 4763.05 of the Revised Code. The certificate holder, registrant, or licensee shall file the renewal application at least thirty days, but no earlier than one hundred twenty days, prior to expiration of the certificate holder's, registrant's, or licensee's current certificate, registration, or license.

(B) A certificate holder, registrant, or licensee who fails to renew a certificate, registration, or license prior to its expiration is ineligible to obtain a renewal certificate, registration, or license and shall comply with section 4763.05 of the Revised Code in order to regain certification, registration, or licensure, except that a certificate holder, registrant, or licensee may renew the certificate, registration, or license without having to comply with section 4763.05 of the Revised Code by doing either of the following:

(1) Filing a renewal application and submitting payment of all fees for renewal and payment of the late filing fee set forth in section 4763.09 of the Revised Code within three months after the expiration of the certificate holder's, registrant's, or licensee's certificate, registration, or license;

(2) Obtaining a medical exception under division (C) of this section, filing a renewal application, and submitting payment of all fees for renewal and payment of the late filing fee set forth in section 4763.09 of the Revised Code. A certificate holder, registrant, or licensee who applies for late renewal of the certificate holder's, registrant's, or licensee's certificate, registration, or license may not engage in any activities permitted by the certification, registration, or license being renewed during the three-month period following the certificate's, registration's, or license's normal expiration date, or during the time period for which a medical exception applies, until all renewal fees and the late filing fee have been paid.

(C) The superintendent may grant a medical exception upon application by a person certified, registered, or licensed under this chapter. To receive an exception, the certificate holder, registrant, or licensee shall submit a request to the superintendent with proof satisfactory that a medical exception is warranted. If the superintendent makes a determination that satisfactory proof has not been presented, within fifteen days of the date of the denial of the medical exception the certificate holder, registrant, or licensee may file with the division of real estate a request that the real estate appraiser board review the determination. The board may adopt reasonable rules in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code to implement this division.
