Auctioneers are licensed professionals who conduct auctions for the sale of a property. To become an auctioneer you must be registered as a land agent or sales representative and apply to have the auctioneer condition added to your registration.

If your land agent or sales representative registration has been cancelled a new application will be required.

Digital licences

All real estate registrations are now digital and a physical card is not required. You can download your licence or registration to an Apple or Android smart phone or tablet using the mySAGOV app.

If there are situations where digital display is not possible - for example, no internet coverage or a faulty phone - CBS officers checking for compliance will use alternative methods to check you are appropriately registered.
