Deadline for Assistant Strata Managers licence qualifications extended by 3 Months

The NSW Government has given assistant real estate agents and strata managers in NSW an additional three months to keep working while they register for professional qualifications.

The extension will avoid thousands of assistant agents being forced to leave the industry at a time when demand is at an all-time high and rapidly growing. It will also ensure that tenants and landlords, continue to receive essential property management services.

Back in March 2020 assistants were put on a four-year certificate period which is due to expire this month on 22 March 2024. They can now apply for a one-off extension from 1 March to 22 June 2024.

Assistant agents must be enrolled in either Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice (CPP41419) or Certificate IV in Strata Community Management (CPP40516 or CPP40521) to apply for this extension.

On the Spot Fines

On the spot fines of $1,100 from NSW Fair Trading or court issued fines of up to $11,000 will be issued should an agent fail to meet the deadline and continue working without the appropriate certificate.

Licensees in charge and employers who oversee and manage assistant agents without a registration will face the maximum penalty of $11,000.
