PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed May 26, 2005, 2:48 p.m. , effective June 26, 2005 ]


Purpose: To suspend indefinitely the collection of change of address and transfer fees from real estate licensees, addressed under WAC 308-124A-460. It is anticipated the department will retain its statutory authority to collect such a fee in the future, however, current licensee levels indicate the collection of this fee at this time is unnecessary for administering the program. The department seeks to suspend the collection of the $26.50 at this time.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 18.85.040(1).
