Attention Licensees:

As of 3/8/2017, all E&O insurance suspensions have been processed and updated. All  licensees who do not reflect current and sufficient E&O insurance have been placed in a suspended status and suspension letters are being sent in accordance with Tenn. Code Ann. 62-13-112(j)(2). If you have sufficient E&O insurance on file with the Commission, no additional action is necessary. If your license is currently in a Retired status, you are not required to maintain E&O however you must continue to renew your license every two years.

If you have received a letter regarding your license being suspended due to out dated E/O insurance coverage, please send the updated policy to TREC.INFO@TN.GOV . Please be aware it may take up to ten business days to remove the suspension. In the email please provide your name, license number and updated policy form. To avoid potential penalties the policy must be backdated to January 1, 2017.

Please visit to confirm the status of your license before contacting the Commission. Please be aware that this process will not change the status of licenses that were suspended as a result of another issue, including suspensions resulting from a failure to maintain errors and omissions insurance in a previous year that has not been cured.
