Important Renewal Information – 2019 Renewals Begin May 1st

South Carolina Real Estate Licensees with a June 30, 2019 expiration date may begin renewing their licenses on May 1st, 2019. A renewal login link will be posted to on that date. Through the Real Estate Commission website you can also find the 2019 Renewal FAQ and a link to an Account Login Help document.

LLR encourages all licensees to please renew online. Individuals who are required to report disciplinary action, criminal convictions or pending criminal charges since last renewal will need to submit additional documentation and will be provided an email address during the renewal process for submission.

USER ID information will be included in the header of your renewal notice. Password information will NOT be provided. You will need to have an up to date email address to reset your password or to recover your USER ID online.

If you do not have a current email address on file with the Commission to reset your password or receive your USER ID, please email with your name, license number and the last 5 digits of your SSN and request an email address update.

If you do not know your password, click on the “Recover/Reset My Password” link at the bottom of the Renew Online webpage. If you do not know your USER ID, there is also a USER ID request link. This is a time of extremely high volume for our staff. In order to efficiently serve our licensees and avoid disruption during this period, any walk-in applicants will not be able to have their renewals processed while they wait. Pocket cards also must be mailed to the office location of the supervising Broker or Property Manager in Charge. We also encourage you to READ CAREFULLY. All routine questions regarding renewal can be found in the Renewal FAQ linked at the top of this web page.

Please be sure to review the CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE) REQUIREMENTS AND REPORTING section below on this page to make sure you have properly completed the necessary CE or exemption reporting to renew as active if you are a salesperson, broker or broker in charge.

A regularly updated calendar of upcoming CE courses is available at the following link:

Remember that licenses which expire on June 30, 2019 and are not renewed before January 1, 2020 will be canceled by statute. After the June 30th expiration date, an additional $15 late fee will be assessed for each month it is late through December. As a South Carolina Real Estate Licensee, it is your responsibility to keep up with your expiration date and to renew. Licensees are required to renew whether or not they receive notice.
