17-7927. Change of address of registered office by resident agent; change of name of resident agent. (a) A resident agent may change the address of the registered office of any covered entities for which such agent is resident agent to another address in this state by paying a fee if authorized by law, as provided by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 17-7910, and amendments thereto, and filing with the secretary of state a certificate, executed by such resident agent, setting forth the names of all the covered entities represented by such resident agent, and the address at which such resident agent has maintained the registered office for each of such covered entities, and further certifying to the new address to which each such registered office will be changed on a given day, and at which new address such resident agent will thereafter maintain the registered office for each of the covered entities recited in the certificate. Thereafter, or until further change of address, as authorized by law, the registered office in this state of each of the covered entities for which it is a resident agent shall be located at the new address of the resident agent thereof as given in the certificate.

(b) Whenever the location of a resident agent's office is moved to another room or suite within the same structure and such change is reported in writing to the secretary of state, no fee shall be charged for recording such change on the appropriate records on file with the secretary of state.

(c) In the event of a change of name of any person or entity acting as resident agent in this state, such resident agent shall pay a fee if authorized by law, as provided by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 17-7910, and amendments thereto, and file with the secretary of state a certificate, executed by such resident agent, setting forth the new name of such resident agent, the name of such resident agent before it was changed, the names of all the covered entities represented by such resident agent, and the address at which such resident agent has maintained the registered office for each of such covered entities. A change of name of any person or entity acting as a resident agent as a result of a merger or consolidation of the resident agent, with or into another entity which succeeds to its assets by operation of law, shall be deemed a change of name for purposes of this section.

(d) In the event of both a change of name of any person or entity acting as resident agent for any covered entity and a change of address, such resident agent shall pay a fee if authorized by law, as provided by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 17-7910, and amendments thereto, and file with the secretary of state a certificate, executed by such resident agent, setting forth the new name of such resident agent, the name of such resident agent before it was changed, the names of all the covered entities represented by such resident agent and the address at which such resident agent has maintained the registered office for each such covered entity, and further certifying to the new address to which each such registered office will be changed on a given day, and at which new address such resident agent will thereafter maintain the registered office for each of the covered entities recited in the certificate. Upon the filing of such certificate, and thereafter, or until further change of address or change of name, as authorized by law, the registered office in this state of each of the covered entities recited in the certificate shall be located at the new address of the resident agent as given in the certificate and the change of name shall be effective.
