Section 626.8443, Florida Statutes 2009
626.8443 Duration of suspension or revocation.--
(1) The department shall, in its order suspending a title insurance agent's or agency's license or appointment or in its order suspending the eligibility of a person to hold or apply for such license or appointment, specify the period during which the suspension is to be in effect, but such period shall not exceed 1 year. The license, or appointment, or eligibility shall remain suspended during the period so specified, subject, however, to any rescission or modification of the order by the department, or modification or reversal thereof by the court, prior to expiration of the suspension period. A license, appointment, or eligibility which has been suspended may not be reinstated except upon request for such reinstatement, but the department shall not grant such reinstatement if it finds that the circumstance or circumstances for which the license, appointment, and eligibility was suspended still exist or are likely to recur.
(2) A licensee and appointee whose license has been revoked by the department does not have the right to apply for a new license or appointment for 2 years from the effective date of the revocation or, if judicial review of such revocation is sought, for 2 years from the date of the final court order or decree affirming the revocation. The department shall not, however, grant a new license or appointment or reinstate eligibility to hold such license or appointment if it finds that the circumstance or circumstances for which the previous license and appointment was revoked still exist or are likely to recur.
(3) If licenses of any person as a title insurance agent or agency have been revoked twice, the department shall not thereafter grant or issue a title insurance agent's or agency's license to such person.
(4) During the period of suspension or after revocation of the license and appointment, the former licensee shall not engage in or attempt to profess to engage in any transaction or business for which a license or appointment is required under this code or directly or indirectly own, control, or be employed in any manner by any insurance agent or agency or adjuster or adjusting firm.
