Texas Occupations Code

Sec. § 1101.451
License Expiration and Renewal


(a)

The commission may issue or renew a license for a period of 24 months.

(b)

The commission by rule may adopt a system under which licenses expire on various dates during the year. The commission shall adjust the date for payment of the renewal fees accordingly.

(c)

For a year in which the license expiration date is changed, renewal fees payable shall be prorated on a monthly basis so that each license holder pays only that portion of the fee that is allocable to the number of months during which the license is valid. On renewal of the license on the new expiration date, the total renewal fee is payable.

(d)

Except as provided by Subsection (e), a renewal fee for a license under this chapter may not exceed, calculated on an annual basis, the amount of the sum of the fees established under Sections 1101.152 (Fees), 1101.154 (Additional Fee: Texas Real Estate Research Center), and 1101.603 (Payments Into Trust Account).

(e)

A person whose license has been expired for 90 days or less may renew the license by paying to the commission a fee equal to 1-1/2 times the required renewal fee. If a license has been expired for more than 90 days but less than six months, the person may renew the license by paying to the commission a fee equal to two times the required renewal fee.

(f)

If a person’s license has been expired for six months or longer, the person may not renew the license. The person may obtain a new license by complying with the requirements and procedures for obtaining an original license.
