    • Paul,
      Hello! When your license expires. You have 2 years from the expiration date to reactive your license and pay a late fee. There is no paperwork that you need to complete.
      To reactivate your license you need to go to the boards website and pay for your license renewal online. If you have never paid for your license online. You will need to create an account and link your license to that account.
      If you do not have the renewal paperwork that the board mailed you. You will need to call the board to ask them for your Record ID/license number and Authorization Code (617) 727-3074.

  2. I had my real estate license 14 years ago; I let it expire and never took continuing education classes.

    Is it better to retake the classes/exam at this point? Any advice is appreciated.

    • Hello! Thank you for coming to us for help with your real estate license. The state does not let you retake the class if you have an expired license. You will need to fill out the application to reinstate your license. You can find the request for application as a link in the blog post on our website.
