Licensure By Reciprocity:
South Carolina currently has a reciprocal agreement with Georgia and West Virginia.
Requirements to obtain a license by reciprocity:
Example: (An individual applying for a reciprocal license who is a resident of Ga. must also have taken the written exam in Ga. and must maintain an active license in Ga. The certification of licensure must reflect this information.)
A nonresident salesman license may not be granted to an applicant unless that applicant is affiliated with a resident or nonresident broker in charge licensed by the South Carolina Real Estate Commission. (The Broker in Charge must maintain an active license issued by SC.)
BROKER IN CHARGE AFFLIATION FORM (To be uploaded with Salesman and Broker applications)
A nonresident broker license may not be granted to an applicant unless that applicant is affiliated with a resident or nonresident broker in charge licensed by the South Carolina real estate commission. (The Broker in Charge must maintain a license issued by SC.) A nonresident broker has the option of applying for a Broker in Charge designation by supplying the name of the real estate company they will operate and the location of the company.
Criminal Background Check - All applicants are required to obtain a criminal background report from http://recheck.llr.sc.gov and upload a copy with your application.
If a nonresident licensee who receives a South Carolina license by reciprocity becomes a resident they only need to notify the real estate commission of a change in residency within sixty (60) days of the change of address.
