When a license is due for renewal, the licensee will be notified in two ways: a postcard reminder will be sent to the licensee’s business address provided in the licensee’s eAccessNY account and an email will be sent to the licensee provided in the licensee’s eAccessNY account. These reminded will be sent 3 months before your license expiration date. You will need to take 22.5 hours of approved real estate education from an approved real estate school.
