Criteria for Rehabilitation Amendments – Sections 2911 and 2912
Where an applicant for a real estate license, or a current real estate licensee, has suffered a criminal conviction, the Criteria for Rehabilitation offer categories of relevant facts that the applicant or licensee may offer as evidence to demonstrate rehabilitation. The Criteria appear in Sections 2911 and 2912 of the Regulations of the Real Estate Commissioner. This proposal updates and modifies the Criteria.
