New law raises plate fees starting July 1, 2022
We’re implementing. The bill requires education on Fair Housing for new licensees and renewals. It applies to real estate brokers and managing brokers and goes into effect on June 1, 2022.
You’ll need to submit applications for the new Fair Housing curriculum course starting on May 23, 2022. Sign into your SAW account and fill out the application. The new Fair Housing curriculum course is officially titled “Washington Real Estate Fair Housing (6hr).” Existing licensees will receive credit on their account after completing the course.
We’re updating the Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Law course to include Fair Housing.
We’ll allow licensees until June 1, 2023, to take the Fair Housing 6-hour course. This provides a full year to sign up and complete the Washington Real Estate Fair Housing (6hr) course.
On June 1, 2022, you may sign into your account or search for the new course to find an accredited school. This is the only course that we’ve approved for you to receive credit.
We started the process for implementing Substitute Senate Bill 5378. The bill requires education on Fair Housing for brokers and managing brokers. It applies to new licensees and renewals. The new law goes into effect on June 1, 2022.
We plan to have this curriculum available before June 1, 2022. Schools will need to submit applications for a new course approval. Instructors will also need to submit an application for the new curriculum.
You'll need to sign up for the 6-hour Fair Housing course once it is available. If you are renewing your license in 2022, you must take the 6-hour Fair Housing course by June 1, 2023. If you completed your education before June 1, 2022, you'll have to take the new 6-hr course before you renew. This also applies if you got your first license before June 1, 2022. Only 1 course meets the continued education requirements. It's titled “Washington Real Estate Fair Housing (6-hr) (3-hr)”.
We’ve started implementing. We’re working with industry representatives for a curriculum to be available to real estate schools. The goal is to allow schools and instructors to develop a Fair Housing course before June 1, 2022. We are also giving licensees extra time to take the required course.
Active and managing brokers must take the Fair Housing education course. This is part of the required 30-hour instruction. The first active renewal after June 1, 2022 must include a 6-hour course on Fair Housing. With every renewal afterward, you must complete a 3-hour course.
New brokers will receive a 3-hour Fair Housing course as part of the normal 90-hour pre-licensing curriculum. On your first license renewal, you’ll also get an extra 3 hours as part of the normal 90-hour curriculum.
