Property Management requirements in Oklahoma

Must Oklahoma property management companies have a real estate broker's license?

YES. Key components of property management (leasing and renting) are considered real estate activities under existing Oklahoma real estate licensing laws. If a property manager is going to lease, rent, list, solicit for prospective tenants, solicit listings of places for rent or lease, or negotiate or attempt to negotiate to perform any of those acts, he or she will need a broker's license. A salesperson working under a broker may engage in such activities.

There have been discussions in Oklahoma about creating a separate property management license; however, as of this writing, no formal proposals have been submitted.

Are there any exceptions to the requirements that an Oklahoma property manager have a real estate broker's license?

YES. For examples, owners and their salaried are generally exempt.

For more information about these and other Oklahoma property management requirements and exceptions, please contact the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission.

Before hiring a property manager to manage your Oklahoma rental property, you should always check that he or she is licensed appropriately. You can check the license status of Oklahoma property managers using the state's Licensee Search webpage.
