It’s been more than two years since the pandemic changed the real estate landscape and how you do business, and your license renewal may not be on your mind. But now is the time to ensure your license hasn’t been expired for more than two years, which requires you to take extra steps to renew.

What Happens if My License Is Expired for More Than Two Years?

The Real Estate License Act requires that a license holder whose license has been expired for more than two years must pass the exam and meet current pre-license education and experience requirements. There are no exceptions to this statutory requirement.

How Do I Know When it is Time to Renew My License?

Every license holder receives notifications from TREC at least 90 days prior to your license expiration date. If you have not received communications regarding your renewal, first make sure you have provided TREC with your most updated contact information, as this is a common reason why license holders are unaware of their renewal. Remember, TREC Rule 535.21 requires license holders to report changes to contact information within 10 days of the date of the change.
