Rental property managers are licensed by the New Brunswick Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs under the provisions of the provincial Real Estate Agents Act. Applicants must complete a pre-licensing course offered by Real Estate Association and pass the examination at the end of the course.
Applicants are required to have a minimum of two years' experience as a real estate salesperson. Applicants must be of legal age and be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident. The Act provides that any applicant may be assessed for suitability prior to their licence being issued.
