In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Real Estate Commission and the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (the Agency) extended all deadlines for two months for all license holders and applicants statewide with license expiration or application deadlines in August and September. This extension ended on October 31, 2017.
After careful assessment of the significant impact and damage sustained by our license holders, the Agency has decided to further extend application and renewal deadlines by an additional period up to four months for those in the 60-county disaster area declared by Governor Abbott.
License holders who live in the affected counties with licenses set to expire August 31, 2017 through January 31, 2018, will be extended until February 28, 2018.
Initial applicants who live in the affected counties with applications set to expire August 21, 2017 through February 27, 2018, will also be extended until February 28, 2018.
PearsonVue, the exam provider for all license applications, has been notified of these changes.
