What is the MahaRERA Estate Agent Certificate of Competency Exam? Who needs to undertake it?

MahaRERA (RERA- Maharashtra) has now made it mandatory for all estate agents in Maharashtra to get registered with MahaRERA. To get registered with MahaRERA, the estate agent needs to complete a training course for estate agents and pass the Certificate of Competency exam. The agent can apply for registration only after passing the exam.
This rule applies to existing real estate agents as well as those seeking entry into the field. It is also needed by sales staff from sales departments of real estate developers and sales staff working with real estate agents; essentially all the people who are directly involved in facilitating the sale or purchase of real estate and have to interact with customers for that.

What will happen to the existing MahaRERA estate agent registration?

The existing MahaRERA estate agent registration will remain valid only if the agent clears the MahaRERA Estate Agent Certificate of Competency Exam before September 1, 2023. If the estate agent is unable to clear before 1st September 2023, the agent will have to first clear the exam and then reapply for the registration (license).

What happens if a registered agent cannot clear the exam before 1st September 2023?

The agent's license to operate in Maharashtra will not stay valid. He/she will need to first clear the exam and then reapply for the license (registration with MahaRERA).

Can an estate agent appear for the exam without undergoing the training?

It is mandatory to undertake a 20 hours online training course conducted by authorised training partners of MahaRERA before appearing for the examination.

Why has MahaRERA introduced the CoC training course and examination?

Real estate agents are the public face and intermediaries between the home buyers /allottees and promoters. The Government believes that it is essential for real estate agents to have a comprehensive understanding of real estate transactions in order to guide the home buyers/allottees through each stage of the purchase of any plot, apartment unit or building so as to avoid any misunderstanding and disputes. The Government wants to bring in a level of consistency in the practices of real estate agents, enhance the agents knowledge and awareness of the regulatory and legal framework and enforce a code of conduct for real estate agents. For this purpose, the Government of Maharashtra has made it mandatory to undergo a twenty hours online course conducted by authorised training partners, so also, to undertake and clear the MahaRERA Estate Agent Certificate of Competency Exam.
