How to Remove Prior License Discipline From Your DRE License Profile

 

Right now, in the midst of a great deal of uncertainty, many real estate professionals are taking time to create innovative new business plans. Others are evaluating new ways to streamline their brokerages into lean, mean, profit-making machines.

All of these actions make sense right now. But, if you still have not taken care of removing old, dated, disciplinary information from your professional license history, consider hitting pause and turning your attention to this important issue.

How does one find out about eligibility?

TO MEET THE MINIMUM ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS, YOU MUST:

  1. HAVE A CURRENT, ACTIVE LICENSE ISSUED BY THE DRE
  2. AT LEAST TEN (10) YEARS MUST HAVE ELAPSED SINCE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE DISCIPLINE

We recommend working with an attorney knowledgeable in DRE licensing matters. The attorney will conduct an assessment of your current status to determine whether you are fully eligible to submit the petition at this time or whether additional corrective efforts are recommended before initiating the petition.

If your license is still restricted, the DRE will allow you to do a “two in one” petition application so long as you meet the minimum requirements for both steps.

It’s often the case that you’re going to be eligible to have restrictions removed long before you become eligible to petition to have online information regarding the prior discipline removed from the DRE website. However, in certain cases, there are brokers and real estate salespersons that have waited long enough to get their license fully reinstated AND have online disciplinary information removed using just one petition to accomplish both goals.

We have noticed that this important procedure available to many licensees is often overlooked. If you are currently re-focusing your personal goals and your business plans, Petitioning to address the removal of prior actions must be job one and at the top of your list.
