Legal Q&A | Will I be legally responsible for making sure that my agents get privilege licenses every year?
QUESTION: I am in the process of getting a real estate license for my newly-formed real estate firm. I will act as the Qualifying Broker and BIC of the firm, and I plan to have several agents affiliated with the firm. I have been an agent for ten years and have paid the Department of Revenue for a privilege license each year. Since I’m going to be doing business in the name of my firm, will I still need to get a privilege license from the NC Department of Revenue for myself, and/or will I need to get one for the firm? Also, will I be legally responsible as BIC of my firm for making sure that my agents get privilege licenses every year?
