Information About Renewal Applications for All Licensees and Permits

Starting in 2012, all Real Estate licenses and permits expire April 30 of even years (2012, 2014). This includes Broker, Associate Broker and Salesperson licenses, whether in active or inactive status, and all office permits.

Several weeks before your license expiration date, a renewal notice will be mailed to you. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

Renewing Active Broker, Associate Broker and Salesperson Licenses

We will mail your renewal notice to the Broker address on your record.

You are required to attest to completing the required continuing education (CE) to renew your license. The amount of CE and course content required depend on when your license was issued. For information about the CE requirements, see Continuing Education Requirements and Section 13.0 of the Commission’s Rules and Regulations.

Renewing Inactive Broker, Associate Broker and Salesperson Licenses

We will mail your renewal notice to the personal address on your record.

Please keep your contact information in our records up-to-date so that notices we send will reach you.  To check and update your contact information online, click Change Contact Information.

There is no continuing education requirement for renewing an inactive license.

You cannot reactivate an inactive license online. If you wish to return your license to active status so that you can practice in Delaware, complete and submit a Request for Reactivation of a Delaware Real Estate License.

How to Renew an Expired License

If you do not renew your license or permit before the expiration date, the license or permit will expire. It is illegal to practice while a Broker, Associate Broker or Salesperson license is expired. It is illegal to operate a Real Estate Office while its permit is expired.

You may file a late renewal application for a period of sixty days after the expiration date. However, if the license has been expired more than 60 days, you must apply for reinstatement of the license.
