Registration Renewal:
Filing Representative Class 1

Step 1: Pay Renewal Fees

For faster processing, Filing Representatives can pay their renewal fees on our secure online payment portal. After your online payment is processed, you will receive a confirmation email from the subject will be Department of Buildings Payment Confirmation.

Step 2: Submit Application & Supporting Documents

Upon renewal, all Filing Representatives will transition to a three-year cycle beginning on your birthday following the date of renewal.  At that time a $150.00 registration fee will be required.  To complete the renewal process, Class 1 Filing Representatives must mail their application and the required documents listed below to:

    NOTE: To avoid a $50.00 late fee, renewal applications must be submitted 30-60 days before the expiration date indicated on the registration card.


  • Avoid delays in processing your renewal application.  Documents not submitted as requested will not be processed and your application will be returned to you.
