Any individuals, partnerships or companies wishing to operate as real estate settlement or business settlement agents in Western Australia are required, under the Settlement Agents Act 1981, to be licensed and hold a current triennial certificate.
What do I need to complete an application
To renew a licence you must complete the application form and provide all relevant supporting documentation as follows:

- current copy of your Professional Indemnity and Fidelity Insurance Coverage from the Professional Indemnity and Fidelity Master Policy

Late renewal applications
Applications lodged within one month of expiry of your triennial certificate - the renewal shall be deemed to take effect for the period of three years from the day next succeeding the day on which the triennial certificate expired.
Applications lodged more than one month but not more than 12 months after the expiry of your triennial certificate - you are required to satisfy the Commissioner that there is reasonable cause for the renewal to be deemed to take effect for the period of three years from the day after the triennial certificate expired.
Renewal applications for surrendered triennial certificates
