State of Illinois Implements Paperless Licensing for Real Estate Professionals
CAA leaders met recently with Secretary Bryan Schneider of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation where he described the department’s new paperless real estate licensing and renewal process. The transition away from paper-based renewals and licenses means that regulated professionals will now be able to renew their license quickly and easily online, and be provided proof of licensure through email and IDFPR’s License Lookup application. The move to paperless technology is part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to modernize the state’s regulatory agency and will save the state nearly $3 million in postage, paper and printing costs over the next five years.
