F.S. 401.321
401.321 Transferability of license; effect of sale, transfer, assignment, or lease of service.
(1) Each license is valid only for the licensee to whom it is issued and is not subject to sale, assignment, or other transfer, voluntary or involuntary. A license or permit is valid only for the service location for which it was originally issued.
(2) A license will automatically expire when a licensee changes his or her service location or service name as registered with the department. The expired license must be surrendered by the licensee, and the department shall issue a new license for the balance of the term under the expired license upon receipt of a completed application and a fee of $30.
(3) An application for a new license is required when:
(a) A majority of the ownership or a controlling interest of a service is transferred or assigned; and
(b) A lessee agrees to undertake or provide services to the extent that legal liability for the service rests with the lessee.

The application for a new license showing such change must be submitted so as to be received by the department at least 60 days prior to the date of the sale, transfer, assignment, or lease.
