FAQ: What past criminal activity must I disclose to the Commission?

What past criminal activity must I disclose to the Commission?

Applicants must disclose:

  • The details of convictions.
  • Any pleas of nolo contendere.

Real estate license applicants do not need to include any expunged crimes or minor traffic violations.

In addition to DUIs, petty theft, and underage drinking, Florida real estate license applicants must include any other misdemeanor or felony charges. It is important that the applicant document each incident fully. An applicant must include any criminal history that may have happened outside Florida’s borders. A criminal history does not automatically disqualify an applicant from licensure in Florida.

An application may be reviewed by the FREC and take upwards of 90 days to process. (Florida Statute 475.17). The FREC may refuse to certify any candidate who has violated any of the provisions of Florida Statute 475.42 or who is subject to discipline under Florida Statute 475.25.
