You do not need a license to be listing agent

One of our Clients wondered whether listing agents should have professional license to conduct business activities in that scope or whether it is possible to conclude real estate agency agreement with any entity.

Regulations creating an obligation for listing agents to possess a professional license issued by the minister was repealed  during deregulation of some professions. Thus, governmental authorities does not issue such documents anymore. Nowadays, real estate agency agreement may be concluded with any entity, which should however possess civil liability insurance.

In professional transactions it is possible to encounter licenses of real estate agent issued by associations of entities acting on real estate market – the lack of such license does not mean lack of right to conduct real estate agency services.
