TOPIC: What states requires apartment property managers to have licenses or designation

What states requires apartment property managers to have licenses or designation 2 months 3 weeks ago #52518

What states requires apartment property managers to have licenses or designations, I am talking about:
CAM
CAMT
Real Estate License
CAPS
CPM
HCCP

Among other designations and licenses, does your state have specific requirements to do your job.
I’m in Indiana and the designations help but they are not absolutely required for a PM position as long as you have plenty of experience.

I’m just curious, if you ask….

Michigan is currently requiring real estate licenses but the apartment association has been fighting it for several years.

I believe Michigan requires Licenses for 3rd party management. If you have ownership interest, neither you nor your employees need to be licensed.

Utah and Georgia do not require any licenses or designations, they do help though.

GA does require someone to be licensed to sign leases, although it can be someone off site.

Both states require a license to operate- so yes, you’re correct, but neither state requires their property managers to be licensed or certified.

Property manager license is required in South Carolina, but you can have a real estate license instead. Just depends on the company

Nothing required in WI. You do need to be a broker to sign leases and negotiate rents.

SC-PM license, NC - Real Estate License. Most states require you to be a licensed RE agent to manage single family homes but not multi family. The other industry designations are sought after but not required in any state. I recently got my CPM just to make myself more valuable

NC doesn’t require managers to have a license. Property management companies must have a BIC. (licensed agent that is a broker in charge)
