Continuing Education Requirements for Renewal

In 2018 the South Carolina Manufactured Housing Board promulgated Regulation 79-6 (D) requiring Continuing Education (CE) training for all classifications of manufactured housing licenses issued by the Board, with the exception of manufacturers.

As a reminder, the CE requirements are pro-rated if you have had your license for less than twenty-four (24) months.

More information about Continuing Education can be found here.

Renewal FAQ
    Can an employer or spouse complete my license renewal?

    No. Each Manufactured Housing licensee must complete his/her own renewal application and answer the personal/history questions themselves. The licensee is responsible for his/her answers and will have to attest to that during the renewal process.

    If I do not have a credit/debit card, can I complete the online renewal application and mail in a check or money order separately to pay the fee?

    Yes, however, your license will not be renewed until the payment is received and processed.

    How do I submit my proof of surety bond and criminal background check when I renew my license online?

    Before you can renew your license online you must submit your bond continuation or new surety bond with your criminal background check. You may either mail these documents to the Board, or use the Document Submission portal on the Board's website by logging in with your renewal information and uploading the necessary documents. Be aware that new surety bonds must be mailed with an original signature, visible surety company seal on the bond form, and must be accompanied by the surety company's Power of Attorney; while bond continuations may be uploaded to Document Submission. Please allow time for documents to be received and processed before going to the website to complete your online license renewal.

    Can I renew my Apprentice Salesperson license?

    The Apprentice Salesperson license is non-renewable. It is valid for 120 days from the date of approval, after which time the Apprentice Salesperson must submit an application and meet the requirements for licensure as a Retail or Multi-lot Salesperson.
