KREC: New online portal & license numbers
The Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) is excited to announce the launch of a new online services portal. The portal will provide licensees with expanded online services, including the ability to view and edit your licensing profile, initiate licensing changes, and process other licensing requests electronically.
In order to access the portal, you must login and create a NEW ACCOUNT using your Social Security number OR the identification number (OP_ID) that was sent in an email from the Kentucky Real Estate Commission on November 22 and resent on December 8. If you don't have the OP_ID, you will need to contact the Kentucky Real Estate Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org or (888) 373-3300.
TO CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT:
Click on the link: https://oop.ky.gov/DPLServices/Login.aspx
Once you click the online services link, you will need to click the 'Create Account' link on the right side of the screen. When you enter your information on the next screen, you will select 'Individual Access' in the 'User Type' box.
After creating your account, you will receive a new license number. Please note, you will still be able to reference your old license number as a legacy number for all searches.
As a result of the online services transition, your firm name, licensee name, or business address may have been inadvertently misspelled or abbreviated. If you would like to correct or change this information, KREC's $10 change fee will be waived for 30 days. Please make any corrections by midnight on Thursday, February 15 using the online services system. After that time, a $10 fee will be reinstated for changes.
Create your account today and begin using the exciting new features provided by the online services portal. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as KREC completes this transition. If you have questions, please contact the Kentucky Real Estate Commission at email@example.com or (888) 373-3300.
What is an OP_ID #?
OP_ID is a unique number that KREC (and the Public Protection Cabinet) can reference to identify an individual instead of utilizing his/her social security number. It is an abbreviation for Occupations and Professionals.
What happens if licensees/brokers do not create a new account before February 15, 2018 (extended date)?
You will be charged $10 transfer fee. In addition, you will also want to ensure that, during the transfer of all the data (name, address for both residential & firm) from the old system to the new system, that all your information transferred correctly without errors. When creating your account, please check to make sure all data is correct. If the firm name or firm address is incorrect, the principle broker can make corrections by February 15 at NO CHARGE - after February 15, 2018 there will be a $10 charge for corrections. Also, a new account must be created by the renewal deadline of March 31, 2018 or brokers and agents will not be able to renew online.
