License Renewal Update – Sep 2017 renewals

License Renewal Update:  Hurricane Irma Notice of Deadline Extensions
Due to the serious disruptions caused by Hurricane Irma, and its impact on licensees throughout the State of Florida, the Department is extending the deadline for the September 30, 2017, renewal cycle for Division of Real Estate licensees until October 23, 2017

License Renewal Update:  Before this extension, you had until October 2, 2017, to timely renew an applicable license, and you may still find some information referencing the previous deadline. To be clear, the October 23, 2017 deadline takes precedence over this earlier deadline.

For timely renewal of your license, please now have all renewal requirements completed and your renewal request properly submitted to the Department by October 23, 2017. If your renewal request is postmarked after October 23, 2017, or submitted electronically after midnight, October 23, 2017 (EST), there will be a $25 late fee assessed. If your expiration date is September 30, 2015, your license will become null & void October 24, 2017, if not renewed.
