Criteria for Establishing Rehabilitation under DRE Guidelines
While past criminal activity can affect your ability to obtain real estate licensure, the DRE does have criteria for establishing rehabilitation. This criteria is very case specific.
- Drug use: The DRE wants to see evidence that you have been clean and sober for at least five years.
- Domestic violence: The DRE wants to see that this encounter was an isolated incident and that there have been no other incidents in the past three or four years.
- Petty theft: The DRE wants to see that the theft was a momentary lapse in judgment and does not reflect your overall character.
Our knowledgeable lawyers understand how to show the DRE that you have taken accountability for your actions and that future misconduct will not occur.
