If you work in real estate here in California, you know the market is competitive. Real estate agents are an integral part of the home buying process, and reputation means everything. But what happens when you do something wrong inside or outside the business? You find yourself facing a hearing with the real estate board.
Just like any other legal hearings, you wouldn’t want to attend those on your own. That’s why real estate agents have Unlock Legal on retainer. When your license is in jeopardy, you need an experienced professional license defense team to defend your case.
We want to take a look at some of the potential violations in the eyes of the Real Estate Board, and we want to highlight some of the recent violations in California.
Disciplinary actions include:
- Actions taken against a licensed or unlicensed person/entity for loan modification activities
- Actions taken against unlicensed real estate activities
- Actions taken against a licensed or unlicensed person/entity for short sale transactions
- Actions taken against course providers
- Actions taken against subdivision violations
- Actions taken against unlicensed prepaid rental listing service activities
The state of California’s Department of Real Estate also lists out all of the code violations. You can read them here.
If you settle a violation with the state, the licensing board will publish your name and violation. You can see August 2019’s settled cases here.
Criminal infractions can happen outside the real estate industry too. These often can be arrests like DUI, shoplifting, aggravated assault, domestic violence and many other charges that are a serious threat to your real estate license even though they likely have nothing to do with real estate at all.
We also work with aspiring real estate professionals who may have had an arrest or conviction years prior and are now discovering that this could be a barrier to the professional license they currently seek.
