Helpful Hints

How do I access my record in order to renew online?

You'll need the last four digits of your Social Security number and your Kansas real estate license number. License numbers are printed on the license, the pocket card and the paper renewal application. Alternatively, you may find the license number using the Licensee Verification link on this site.

If you receive an error message, try again and be sure you have entered your entire license number (10 characters) including the two-letter prefix and the zeroes preceding the number. If you are still unsuccessful in accessing your record, it may be that your Social Security number does not match our records. Please contact the Commission at (785) 296-3411 for assistance.

Will I get a receipt or confirmation?

Yes. A confirmation will be e-mailed to you, and you have the option of sending your affiliated companies an e-mail confirmation.

Additionally, at the end of the online renewal process, you may print a confirmation page that will confirm your online renewal was completed and your electronic payment was received. This report will include your name, license number, residence address, date and time of renewal, amount paid, and the name and address of all affiliated companies.

Unless your license was renewed on inactive status, the license and pocket card will be mailed to the company address.

Why did I receive a message that says I am not able to renew online?

There could be several reasons. You may have a license status other than active or inactive, or there may be an unresolved issue regarding your license or that of your supervising broker. Furthermore, online renewal is not available if you've ever had disciplinary action taken against a professional or occupational license or if you've ever been convicted of a criminal offense or have a pending criminal charge. In these instances, you must submit the paper renewal form. If you have lost your paper form, a replacement renewal form is available at [Word - 44 KB] [PDF - 136 KB]. Contact KREC at (785) 296-3411 for more information.

How soon may I renew my license?

The online renewal feature is designed to accept renewals up to 45 days prior to the license renewal date (or 75 days prior to the license expiration date). This is in sync with the mailing of the paper renewal notices and the staggered license expiration date schedule that is based on the first letter of the last name as provided in K.A.R. 86-1-3.

The online renewal feature is not designed to accept renewals past the license expiration date. You may download the Application for Late Renewal at [Word - 36 KB] [PDF - 100 KB] or contact KREC at (785) 296-3413. You must file the Application for Late Renewal no later than 6 months after the expiration date of your license. If you fail to do so, you will have to meet the requirements for original licensure.

May I renew my active license online now and take my continuing education later?

No. The required 12 hours of continuing education must be on record with the Commission before an active license may be renewed. For additional information regarding your CEU status, please go to https://www.accesskansas.org/krec-ceu/index.html or contact KREC at (785) 296-3411. 

There is one exception. Licensees with a license number beginning with the letters "SA" are not required to complete continuing education hours for their first license renewal. Licensees in this category have recently converted their temporary salesperson's license to a standard salesperson's license and because of the first letter of their last name, the license expiration date was extended just five months or less. Once the first renewal has been processed, the license number prefix will change to "SP".

May I "renew" my temporary salesperson's license online?

No. Temporary salespersons’ licenses (those with a license number beginning with the letters "TS") are not eligible for "renewal".  To convert the temporary license to a standard license, please use the paper form of the Application for Standard Salesperson’s License that is mailed to you approximately six weeks prior to the license expiration date. If you have lost your conversion application form, you may download a replacement form at [Word - 28 KB] [PDF - 64 KB].  If your temporary license has expired, you must file a Late Application for Standard Salesperson's License within three months of your license expiration date. You may download the late conversion form from the Commission web site at www.kansas.gov/krec. Please contact the Commission at (785) 296-3413 for the appropriate prorated fee or if you have any questions.
