Renewing a real estate license in Ohio

Working in the real estate industry in the state of Ohio is fun, exciting, rewarding and challenging all rolled into one. You never know when your next sale will come or if you will run into problems selling a property. Issues can arise without warning when trying to sell a property. Issues can also arise regarding your license to sell property. That's why you should always make sure it doesn't expire. Here's how you can renew the license in Ohio.

Individuals seeking the renewal of their real estate license, or those seeking their first license, will need to apply online via the Ohio Department of Commerce. The department operates the Division of Real Estate eLicense Center, which is the online portal where people can apply for initial licenses or renew their current licenses to sell real estate.

The online portal allows individuals to register for an account. If you already have an account, you will be able to search for your license when looking to renew it. You will need to provide proper documentation when obtaining your initial license, such as certification records and proof of identification. When renewing your license, you must provide proof that you've obtained 30 hours of continuing education required by the state.

The renewal cycle for real estate licenses goes by your birthday and the year in which you were initially licensed. The continuing education certificates and renewal form must be submitted by your birthday in the renewal year.

Are you facing a review of your real estate license in Ohio? Your license is your livelihood and any review should be taken seriously. It's best to defend your license with the help of an experienced administrative litigation attorney in Cleveland.
