Delray Beach, FL asked in Contracts and Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: I'm a landlord in Florida. I just passed Florida real estate exam. My real estate license status is current inactive.

I didnt sign up with any broker yet. My tenants want to renew for another year. Should I disclose in lease agreement I'm preparing myself for my own lease that I'm real estate sales associate even though my license status is inactive? Also how do I sign the lease owner, landlord and real estate sales associate would be correct?

Please advise. Thank you.

Thank you for your response. Then I dont need to disclose that I have a license because it's not active and I dont have a broker yet, correct?

A: It is nice that you passed the test, but you are not a sales associate yet and you are not allowed to claim a fee until you have an active license which is associated with a broker. Simply lease it as an owner/landlord and do not claim a fee for that.
