DRE increases fees! URGENT PLEASE READ

Published by admin on May 22,2009

I just received this email:

"Effective July 1, 2009, the Department of Real Estate will implement fee changes which will increase real estate license examination, original real estate license, and real estate license renewal fees.

The Department has for the past five years maintained fees at the same levels as those charged in 1982. Despite having taken steps to achieve functional efficiencies and reduce expenditures, the Department must now increase fees to fund its operational needs.

This fee increase will be applied to all examination applications, original license applications and license renewals submitted to DRE on or after July 1, 2009. With respect to on time renewal applications, the license expiration date determines the renewal fee charged. In this regard, licenses expiring before June 30, 2009 will be subject to the current fee as long as the renewal application is filed on-time. Licenses expiring on or after June 30, 2009 will have an effective renewal date of July 1, 2009 or later and will be subject to the new fee. All renewal applications filed on a late basis on or after July 1, 2009 will be subject to the new late renewal fee."

A link to all the fees that have been increased can be found here

If possible hurry up and submit everything before June 30!
