Effective: July 1, 2012

Existing law permits the Real Estate Commissioner (Commissioner) to advise real estate licensees who have not complied with continuing education requirements of their rights to operate before the expiration of their license.

The Commissioner may advise licensees of an extended period for compliance or advise the applicant that their right to operate under the prior license will expire either on the regular expiration date or five days from the date a notice that supplies this referenced advice is mailed, whichever is later. The commissioner must include their reasoning and the right of the applicant to request a hearing.

The amendment will render this law inoperative on July 1, 2012 and repeal this law as of January 1, 2013.
