Reasons a License Will Not Issue

You gave an answer to a question that may prevent you from completing your online transaction. See below for more information.


Are you trying to renew?

You answered "Yes" to this question on a first time sales agent application. Do not submit this first time sales agent application if you are trying to renew your license. Please call our office at 512-936-3000 or email us at information@trec.texas.gov for assistance with your online renewal.

Are you subject to Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) but have not completed the required 278 hours prior to your first renewal?

You answered "Yes" to this question. You cannot renew your license until you have completed a total of 270 qualifying real estate course hours, 4 hours of TREC's Legal Update I, and 4 hours of TREC's Legal Update II. Please submit the qualifying course certificates to documents@trec.texas.gov prior to submitting the renewal.

Is the Designated Broker for your Business Entity in good standing with the Commission?

You answered "Yes" to at least one of the questions regarding your designated broker. The designated broker is not in good standing with the Commission and is not eligible to serve. You must select another broker who is in good standing with the Commission.

Are you an individual with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status?

You answered "Yes" to this question on a first time sales agent application. An individual with DACA status does not meet our licensing requirements as a lawfully admitted alien. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Department website specifically states that deferred prosecution does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient. Receiving a social security number and card does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient, it merely provides proof of the work authorization granted by USCIS. To be considered a lawfully admitted alien, you must have a green card or Permanent Resident card.
