How can I find the status of my Firm application?

Answer: You will receive an email from when your application is approved. The email will include PDF copies of your approval letter and certificate. Renovation firms will also receive a customized logo and guidelines for its use in the approval email. Applications are typically processed in 2 to 3 weeks. You will be contacted if an issue arises in the processing of your application.

Your certificate and customized logo are also sent to your CDX inbox, so if you don’t see the approval in your email check there.  Just keep in mind it may take a week or two for the application to be approved.
