As there is no more probationary appraiser, there are only 2 parts. Part I is for Probationary Valuer and Part II is for Probationary Estate Agent.
After that the Board issues a certification of registration as below:
- Probationary Estate Agent Registration Date: 18 Jul, 2018
- Registration No. PEA2066
Yearly RENEWAL for 2020:
Application to the board for registration need to include among others the "Full-Time" working hours as per circular below.
Some of the reasons that applications were rejected were:
Contract for service having commission of more than 40%. It is required to put commission of not more than 40% in the engagement letter.
Every page of the engagement letter need to be signed by the REA and rubber stamped.
REN need to resign with cancellation of REN Number and reflected in Board bis.lppeh.gov.my system. This means the candidate is no more a REN before being registered as PEA.
