real estate licence

Is 2019 the year you transition to your real estate licence?

10 December 2018
For more than a decade, REINSW has lobbied to professionalise the real estate industry. And over the last several years, we’ve worked closely with the NSW Government to ensure the reform package meets the needs of the industry. This year, the package was passed.

But what do the real estate industry reforms mean for you?

When the industry reforms are introduced, Certificate of Registration holders will be referred to as assistant agents. Within four years, you’ll be required to transition to a Certificate IV in Property Services (CPP40307) and complete 12 months of practical industry experience before you can become a licensed real estate agent.

As an assistant agent, you’ll no longer be able to bind the agency. This means you’re unable to sign managing agency agreements or sales agreements. You’ll also be unable to authorise payments from trust accounts.

"You have a window of opportunity to upskill before the reforms are introduced."
– REINSW Education & Training Manager

Failure to attain your Certificate IV in Property Services and successfully apply for your licence (which requires proof of practical industry experience) within four years, will result in the loss of your Certificate of Registration and a 12-month exclusion from the industry.

Now is the time to start your Certificate IV

If you hold a current Certificate of Registration, you have a window of opportunity to upskill before the reforms are introduced.

Register to complete your Certificate IV in Property Services today and you can become a licensed real estate agent before the reforms come into effect.

This means you can continue to perform all your current functions and maintain your career progression.
