Licenses and Permits in process

Thank you in advance for any advice!

I have used Airbnb for several years and would like to now feature our property on as well.  I have all the info entered but balked at the spot where I am supposed to check the box saying that I certify that I have all the necessary local licenses and permits.  

There is a new law in Costa Rica for alternative accomodations that is just now coming into being.  We are in the process of organizing ourselves to have the correct licenses and permits but it will take awhile.  I am absolutely certain that many of the similar venues in our town and in the country as a whole do not have those license and permits, yet they all use booking.  

Does anyone know if I can check that box since we are in process, or should I wait to finalize my listing until we have everything finished???
