FAQ: Can I get my PA license if I have a prior conviction?

Can I get my PA license if I have a prior conviction?

Yes, you can still obtain a Pennsylvania real estate salesperson's license if you have a prior conviction. However, there is still a chance that your application may be delayed or denied by the Real Estate Commission.
You must submit the required documents along with your license application before the Commission will review your case.
At each Commission meeting, applications are reviewed and a decision is made whether to approve or preliminary deny your license application.
If your application is denied because of a prior conviction, the Commission will give you an opportunity to request an informal conference to further discuss your case.
The Commission will then review your application again at the next Commission meeting and make a second decision whether to accept or deny your application.
