Known of its progressive attitudes and social welfare, Massachusetts is a state awash in licenses and permits. Businesses of all types must comply with numerous regulations. Entrepreneurs should expect a lot of paperwork and processes to become legal to operate.
In Massachusetts, real Estate businesses including Agencies, Brokerages and Leasing Companies need state real estate licenses. State authorities ensure these businesses are properly registered for accountability and that principals understand applicable laws and regulations. In many cases, cities and counties add additional licensing requirements.
