Deadline approaching for some re-licensing

The Minnesota Department of Commerce is reminding real estate professionals and debt collectors with a license expiration date of June 30, 2014 to set some time aside and submit their renewal by June 30, 2014, 4:30 p.m.

This renewal reminder also includes licensees for abstracters, abstracter companies, real estate brokers, real estate salespersons, real estate companies, closing agents, limited brokers, collection agencies, and debt collectors.

“To help streamline the process, renewals are now done entirely online,” said Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman. “Reminders have been sent to individuals responsible for these licenses and we hope everyone renews before their license lapses.”

Continuing Governor Dayton’s Better Government for a Better Minnesota initiative, the Commerce Department has created helpful instructions and information for online license renewals.  Information about the 2014 license renewal process for real estate professionals can be found on the Commerce Department’s website; 2014 renewal information for collection agencies and debt collectors can also be found online; and all license renewals are now completed online at
