these questions are too broad for a Q and A forum like this.  You acquire a liquor license from an existing owner.  You do not apply for issueance of one from the state.  The state must approve the transfer of the license from the existing owner to you.  The length of the process depends on the type of license and underlying issues involved.  You must own or have a lease for a location where the license will be used.  Typcially when parties on both sides have everything in order, the process takes 90-120 days.  The cost depends on how much the seller is willing to take for the license.  prices vary widely throughout the state.  For the City of Pittsburgh, a R license is going to run b/t $60,000 to $75,000 plus attorneys fees and costs of transfer which you should expect to be arond $5,00-$6,500.

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
