You have completed all the requirements necessary to obtain a real estate license in California and invested a large amount of time and money in preparing for exams. But as the Department of Real Estate conducts its background check, there’s just one thing that’s causing you anxiety — a past DUI conviction. Do you really need to worry? Don’t worry; our real estate license defense attorneys can help you out.
California’s Department of Real Estate requires that applicants be “honest and truthful” when applying for a real estate salesperson license, so you don’t want to withhold information about a past criminal conviction. The Department of Real Estate doesn’t include DUI on its list of common convictions that lead to rejections. The most common crimes include:
- Tax evasion
- Possession of drugs
Even if you’re completely honest on your application, there’s still a chance your real estate license application could be rejected.
