ATTENTION: EXPIRED RETURNING TO ACTIVE LICENSEES (17-314) 
Effective October 1, 2011, the term of an expired license will change from 4 years to 3 years.  The expired licensee must apply to the Commission for reinstatement within 3 years after the license expires.  The Commission sent letters to expired licensees to notify them of this change. 

 

ATTENTION: INACTIVE RETURNING TO ACTIVE LICENSEES (17-316)
Effective October 1, 2011, the term of an inactive license will change from 4 years to 3 years AND also continuing education hours MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE RENEWING A LICENSE even on Inactive Status.  However, the new law allows licensees currently on inactive status to continue under the 4-year term without completing the CE hours until ready to reactivate. 

If licensed in another State, Maryland may recognize continuing education hours completed in that State if the course and provider are approved by that State's real estate commission; however, they must also meet Maryland's regulations. Maryland mandated courses are applicable ONLY to Maryland State, Maryland local, or federal laws; not other States' laws.
