What if property managers change during a license year?

The property manager on record at the beginning of the license year is responsible for the entire year's assessment unless the bureau approves a transfer. License transfers should be reported to the Bureau in writing and will be effective after Bureau approval. Once approved, the next installment would be the responsibility of the new property manager.
