How a new TREC rule affects your license renewals

When you renew your real estate license, make sure your CE is complete and processed when you submit your renewal application.

A new Texas Real Estate Commission rule effective Jan. 1, 2015, changes the timing of the CE-deferral fee. Previously, this $200 fee was charged after renewal if the CE was not complete by the time a license expired. Now the fee will be charged for any renewal applications received without documentation of the proper CE credits.

Education providers have up to 10 days to submit course-completion documents to TREC, so make sure you allow enough time for the provider to submit these documents—and for TREC to process them—before you submit your renewal. Otherwise, you may incur the CE-deferral fee.
