You need to know – What is inactive license status?

YouNeedToKnowWeb500A real estate license can be inactive in one of 2 ways:

  • Voluntary inactive

When an individual who has qualified for a license chooses not to be engaged in the real estate business their license status will be voluntary inactive

A license may remain in this status indefinitely provided education requirements are met and the required fees are paid

  • Involuntary inactive

When an individual licensee fails to request renewal their active or voluntary inactive license, maintain their continuing education requirements or pay their fees, their license will automatically assume involuntary inactive status

A license may remain in this status for no more than 2 years after which it will automatically expire and become null and void.

An involuntary inactive license may become active by being brought current (in respect of continuing education requirements and fees) within the 2 year period

Inactive real estate licensees cannot legally perform real estate services for compensation
