Name/Address Change - Maryland Board for Professional Land Surveyors


Each licensee or firm is responsible for promptly notifying the Board of any address changes. Failure to do so resulting in not receiving license renewal notices may result in late renewal fee charges. $100 late fee will be charged when an individual's license is not renewed by the expiration date.

ADDRESS CHANGES may be made online using your registration number and password. Click Individual or Business to make the change now. OR, email your address change to the Board at surveyor@dllr.state.md.us. There is no fee for an address change.


Individual Licensees must submit a request for a name change along with copies of appropriate supporting documents (court order, marriage license) to the Board's office, 500 N. Calvert Street, Room 308, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. You will receive a license with your new name in approximately 4 weeks.

Firms may change the firm name without applying for a new permit if the Federal Employee Identification Number remains the same and the firm has not become a new entity. Send a letter to the Board with the new name and a copy of the Certificate of Good Standing from the Department of Assessments and Taxation showing the new name. You will receive a license with the new name in approximately 4 weeks.

There is no fee for a name change.
