NEW HAMPSHIRE REAL ESTATE PRACTICE ACT
331-A:12-a Inactive Licensure Status.
I. Any licensee who does not want to perform as a broker or salesperson as defined in RSA 331-A:2, and who wants to preserve the license while not engaged in any brokerage activities, including making any referrals for commission or for other compensation, or for the promise of such commission or other compensation, may surrender that license to the commission for placement on inactive status. Provided, however, that while on inactive status, the licensee may be compensated by his or her previous responsible broker for brokerage activities or referrals for which the licensee participated while the licensee was active, pursuant to RSA 331-A:26, XXIV. The commission shall place the licensee on inactive status only upon a written request by the licensee. While on inactive status, the licensee shall renew the license biennially by satisfying the renewal requirements under RSA 331-A:19 and the continuing education requirements adopted by the commission, but is not required to maintain a place of business, or in the case of a licensed principal or managing broker, to maintain a surety bond pursuant to RSA 331-A:14.
II. Any licensee on inactive license status may have the license reinstated to active status by demonstrating compliance in the previous biennium with the continuing education requirements adopted by the commission and requesting to change status from inactive to active, and, in the case of a licensed principal or managing broker, providing evidence of a surety bond as required by RSA 331-A:14.
