My license expiration date is forthcoming.

If all of my renewal requirements and the necessary fees are received by OREA prior to that date, can I continue to practice past the expiration date?

If so I'll be working with a license that appears to be expired and I'm sure that the lenders will question that issue. What documentation will I have to document that my license is current?

Otherwise it appears that one would need to submit the renewal documentation several months prior to the expiration date, obfuscating the rationale for the expiration date.

I've been told by those who offer renewal classes that I have until the expiration date, per se, to renew. I've been on telephone hold for several hours with OREA and not sure how to proceed.

Of course I waited until the last month to get this done but need to know definitively what's what.

Thanks as always, everybody.

Everything has been pushed back to 90 days+, apparently. My understanding is, if you don't submit your renewal packet 90 days before the expiration of your license, you will have an expired license.

Whatever you do send everything signature required at delivery.

If you appraise after your exp date but before you get your renewal you are in fact appraising without a license and in jeopardy of the state revoking your license.

Don't panic, ZZGAMAZZ -

I sent in my license renewal on Jan. 4. My license expires in April, so I made sure that I gave OREA more than 90 days.

I was surprised to receive my renewal today - only 25 days, including mailing time!!

Caligirl is correct - don't use the U.S. Mail - I sent mine by Fedex with signature required.

Lloyd: I can't remember the last time I got any "good news" either on the Forum, in the U.S. Mail, as an e-mail, etc., etc.

Thanks for the encouraging words when everything appears to be so glum all around!

I sent mine in with 60 days left. I was concerned, particularly with all the new Cert applications being processed, so I called the OREA after a week, explained my situation, and they dug my paperwork out and processed it right away. I had it back in a week.

ZZGMAZZ, You can not take any appraisal jobs that are federally related transactions once your license has expired. You can however have someone sign off on them, and list you as having done significant assistance however.

OREA typically processes the renewals faster than others applications, especially the one that done require the continuing education update.(submitted once every 4 yrs). I encourage you to send in ASAP.

Renewal fees, continuing education fees, upgrade fees, E&O fees, gasoline & office expenses are greater than Q4 2007 income. I don't need a creative accountant; the facts speak for themselves (lol)...
