Can I Get A Florida Real Estate License If I Have Filed Bankruptcy ?

     Can a person that has filed bankruptcy get a Florida real estate license?  The answer is yes.  The Florida Real Estate Commission ( that is the people that approve you for a Florida real estate license ) is not concerned with your credit history.  They are concerned with your criminal history.

     There are no questions on the Florida real estate license application about your credit. There are no questions about bankruptcy or foreclosure.   There is a question asking if you have ever been convicted of a crime.  The FREC wants to know about any crime ( misdemeanor or felony ) of which you have been convicted. If you have a judgement against you , the FREC does even want to know.   If you declared bankruptcy yesterday, the FREC doesn't even ask.

     If you have criminal history, that is another story.  Read my article.

     At Climer School of Real Estate, we suggest that, before you enroll in real estate school, apply for your Florida real estate license.  The Department of Business and Professional Regulation's website is The application fee is $105.  Get this out of  the way before you spend your $220 tuition at real estate school.  If you are going to have any difficulty getting a Florida real estate license, you will know before you spend your time and money at real estate school.
