IX. Licence Renewals

Renewal Of Licence

Licensees will receive an email from the Real Estate Council approximately eight weeks before their licence expiry date notifying them that their licence renewal application is due. The email includes instructions for renewing their licence online.

Brokerages, branch offices, and sole proprietors will receive renewal notices by mail approximately eight weeks before their renewal due date.

Licensees must submit a completed renewal application to the Council office 30 days prior to a licence expiry. It is the responsibility of the licensee, or, in the case of a brokerage, the managing broker, to ensure that licences are properly renewed. Failure to receive a renewal notice does not diminish this responsibility.

Licensees must include the appropriate fee with their completed licence renewal application. The licence renewal fee includes the:

  • Real Estate Council of BC licensing fee,
  • Errors and Omissions Insurance assessment, and
  • Superintendent of Real Estate assessment.
