Application Procedure

A first-time application for a salesperson's licence and an estate agent's licence (individual) typically involves the following steps:

  1. An applicant submits an application with the required documents and fee;
  2. EAA banks in the payment;
  3. EAA vets the application and documents submitted;
  4. Where necessary, EAA contacts the applicant or the relevant party such as the educational institution in question to verify or clarify information or documents provided by the applicant;
  5. If everything is in order, EAA approves the application, issues a licence and prints an estate agent card;
  6. EAA updates the Register and the Licence List on its website (which are available for public inspection);
  7. EAA sends the licence and the estate agent card to the applicant by ordinary mail; if the applicant opts for picking up his licence at the EAA office, EAA sends him a pick-up notice;
  8. EAA arranges for a notice to be published in the gazette;
  9. EAA contacts third parties such as the police to verify information provided by the applicant.
A licence will take effect the day it is granted and no prior notice will be given to the applicant. Once a licence is granted, no cancellation request will be accepted (see EAA's refund and cancellation policy).
