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

Can I get my SC salesperson license if I have a prior conviction?

In addition to submitting to a state and federal background check, you will be asked to respond to two questions on your application to take the state real estate license exam. The first of these two questions asks you to disclose any criminal background history, other than traffic tickets.

It is important that you be truthful and thorough in your responses. You will need to provide documentation for any crimes in which you were found guilty, pled guilty or pled no contest.

Each application, as well as each incident, is considered on a case-by-case basis by the commission. Having a criminal record does not necessarily prevent you from being licensed. Since certain convictions are grounds for denial of licensure, you may be asked to appear at an application hearing before the commission. Before the criminal background review can begin, you will need to complete the pre-licensing requirements and submit your application examination.
