Deadline June 30 License Renewal Begins May 15; Save Time By Renewing Online

The annual real estate license renewal period begins May 15. The Commission’s website, www.ncrec.state.nc.us, will be available on that date and through the June 30 deadline for online renewing.

Login at the website and go to Renew/Reinstate and enter your license number and PIN (personal identification number). Unless you have changed your PIN, it will be the last four digits of your Social Security number. Charge the $40 fee using your MasterCard or Visa.

You will receive confirmation, which you can print, that your renewal is being processed by the Commission. While online, update your email, fax and residence address, if needed.

You must renew on or before the deadline of midnight, June 30. If you renew by mail, your renewal must be received at the Commission office on or before that date.

If you miss the deadline, your license will expire and you must pay a $55 fee to reinstate it.

While online, check your continuing education and postlicensing credit information to be certain they has been properly recorded. If you have not completed all your continuing education (eight hours, four of which are the Update Course), you may do so by the June 10 deadline. There are no CE classes after that date until July. Incomplete CE results in the change of status of an “active” license to “inactive” on July 1.

Allow 15 days following a class for any credits to be reflected. The CE credits displayed on the label of this Real Estate Bulletin are those posted about two to three weeks before its arrival. Those posted on the website will be more current.
