The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17. 

(b) The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license converted pursuant to subsection (a) to any other location but it may grant the license to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.
