|Refund and/or cancellation of licence application
Once an application for licence or statement of particulars of business has been approved, no cancellation request will be accepted. A refund will only be made to those:
Where a refund is made, the refund will only be in the form of a crossed cheque payable to the applicant. In other words, a refund cheque will not be issued to a third party (except where the applicant is a bankrupt, then the cheque will be issued either to the applicant or to the trustee, depending on the instructions of the trustee).
- whose applications have been refused;
- who have overpaid the required fees;
- who cancel their applications before they are approved.
Pursuant to section 5(2) of the Estate Agents (Licensing) Regulation, if for any reason a licence ceases to be valid, no part of any fee paid for the licence will be refunded.
