Is it time to renew your business entity broker license with TREC?
Business entity broker licenses must be renewed every two years. You should receive a notice from TREC about your renewal 90 days prior to your license’s expiration date. You have to follow TREC’s requirements to renew your business entity broker license, which includes providing TREC with specific documents. This blog post outlines what those documents are. It’s a good idea to begin the renewal process early, since it can take some time to gather the information. If you miss the renewal, your entity's agents could lose sponsorship.
