4781.19 Issuance and replacement of licenses.

(A) At the time the manufactured homes commission grants the application of any person for a license as a manufactured housing dealer, manufactured housing broker, or manufactured housing salesperson, the commission shall issue to the person a license that includes the name and post-office address of the person licensed. If a manufactured housing dealer or manufactured housing broker has more than one place of business in a county, the dealer or broker shall make application, in such form as the commission prescribes, for a certified copy of the license issued to the dealer or broker for each place of business in the county.

(B) The commission may require each applicant for a manufactured housing dealer's license, manufactured housing broker's license, and manufactured housing salesperson's license issued under this chapter to pay an additional fee, which shall be used by the commission to pay the costs of obtaining a record of any arrests and convictions of the applicant from the bureau of identification and investigation. The amount of the fee shall be equal to that paid by the commission to obtain such record.

(C) In the event of the loss, mutilation, or destruction of a manufactured housing dealer's license, manufactured housing broker's license, or manufactured housing salesperson's license, any licensee may make application to the commission, in the form prescribed by the commission, for a duplicate copy thereof and pay a fee established by the commission.

(D) All manufactured housing dealers' licenses, all manufactured housing brokers' licenses, and all manufactured housing salespersons' licenses issued or renewed shall expire biennially on a day within the two-year cycle that is prescribed by the manufactured homes commission, unless sooner suspended or revoked. Before the first day after the day prescribed by the commission in the year that the license expires, each licensed manufactured housing dealer, manufactured housing broker, and manufactured housing salesperson, in the year in which the license will expire, shall file an application, in such form as the commission prescribes, for the renewal of such license. The fee required by this section for the original license shall accompany the application.

(E) Each manufactured housing dealer and manufactured housing broker shall keep the license or a certified copy thereof and a current list of the dealer's or the broker's licensed salespersons, showing the names, addresses, and serial numbers of their licenses, posted in a conspicuous place in each place of business. Each salesperson shall carry the salesperson's license or a certified copy thereof and shall exhibit such license or copy upon demand to any inspector of the commission, state highway patrol trooper, police officer, or person with whom the salesperson seeks to transact business as a manufactured housing salesperson.
