About 10 days ago we told you about how the installation of DPOR’s new computer system was going to put license-processing on hold for a week or so. Well, it’s done.

The new database is up and running, although it could take a few weeks for the DPOR folks to be fully acclimated to their new electronic digs. So expect delays even now.

In fact, DPOR has a handy FAQ for licensees about migration to the new system — click here to read it (PDF).

One of the more important sections:

WHAT IF MY LICENSE EXPIRES AT THE END OF FEBRUARY?

Board regulations allow a 30-day grace period to renew a license without penalty. The grace period is not a license extension, however, but only additional time to complete education requirements and submit payment.

If you complete your education requirements during the system downtime at the end of February, but the computer migration prevents the school from submitting verification by February 28, you are still allowed to practice real estate.

We are committed to ensuring that any delays resulting from the system conversion will not unfairly penalize licensees.
