A separate license shall be required for each location at which a licensee makes loans under the provisions of this article. The superintendent may issue more than one license to the same licensee. For each new license, the licensee shall comply with all the requirements for obtaining a license as stated in this article.


(a) A licensee may change the location of a licensed lender business by giving written notice to the superintendent at least thirty days prior to such change. The licensee shall pay to the superintendent a fee as prescribed pursuant to § 18-A (Application fees)section eighteen-a of this chapter for each change of location and shall provide any information which may be required regarding the change of location.


The superintendent shall, if satisfied that there is no reasonable objection to such change of location and upon the surrender of the license for the location which is being changed, issue a license containing the information required by subdivision one of this section. If the superintendent shall not be satisfied that such change is in accordance with the purposes of this article, the superintendent shall refuse such change of location and notify the licensee of the determination.
