If you have not yet applied for the renewal of your license, paid your renewal fees, and completed your Continuing Education classes, please do so by November 30, 2018.
Failure to meet this state Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs (DCCA) deadline may risk your application not being processed and approved by the expiration date, and you may have to cease real estate activity that requires a license from January 1, 2019. Licensees who continue to conduct real estate activity without current and active licenses may face enforcement action and may have to refund all compensation earned while they were unlicensed.
The DCCA also emphasizes that PB, BIC and RBO renewals should be submitted as early as possible to ensure the successful renewals of their associated brokers’ and salespersons’ licenses.
Information regarding license renewals are available at the DCCA Real Estate Branch site. You can check the status of your license, earned CE credits, and submit your renewal application via the MyPVL site.
If you have any questions, please contact the DCCA Professional and Vocational Licensing Division by calling (808) 586-3000 to request an application or for information regarding license requirements and fees. HIS will not be able to address any questions regarding licensing matters.
License Required for MLS Service
Under the Subscriber License and Access Agreement signed by all subscribers, and the rules of the service, HIS may provide access to its MLS service only to brokers and agents who possess current and active licenses. All subscribers who have not successfully renewed their licenses by the expiration date shall receive notices of service suspension. In the event of service suspension, they may be subject to reinstatement fees when their licenses are renewed, and services are reactivated. A copy of an active pocket card may be required upon the reinstatement of service if the DCCA PVL search site does not yet show that the subscriber’s license is current and active.
Should there be any questions regarding the license requirements for our service, please contact Membership Director Diana Haraguchi by email to email@example.com, or by calling 1-800-628-3121 ext. 172 if calling from the neighbor islands, or 599-4224 ext. 172 if calling from Oahu.
Not renewing your license?
If you are not intending to renew your license, please notify us in writing by December 10, 2018, so that an invoice will not be generated and to be assured that your credit card or ACH payments will not be processed for services beyond December 31, 2018. Written notices may be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 1-888-628-3121 if faxing from the neighbor islands, or to 536-6499 if faxing from Oahu.
(Please be aware that providing notification of your intent to cancel is for the purpose of avoiding unnecessary billing for January 2019. Final cancellation and release from the obligation to subscribe to MLS service is contingent upon verification with the DCCA that your RE license was INACTIVE before 01/01/19. If it was not, you are subject to payment of dues for the the new quarter of service beginning on January 1, 2019.)
If there are any questions about billing, please send an email to email@example.com or call 1-800-628-3121, if calling from the neighbor islands, or 599-4224 if calling from Oahu.
