Licensing Frequently Asked Questions

How to Renew Your License:

Massachusetts General Law Chapter 112, Section 87XX ½ created an “inactive” license status for those licensees who have not completed the required continuing education credits.  As inactive licensees are prohibited from affiliating with a broker, a referral fee may be paid to them directly. This is the only instance where a salesperson can receive a referral fee directly. Massachusetts General Law Chapter 112, Section 87RR requires that an active salesperson’s referral fee must be paid to the broker in which they are affiliated.
