DRE License Revocation Hearing Lawyer

Put Your Trust in Our Orange County, CA Law Firm

The California Bureau of Real Estate (formerly known as the California Department of Real Estate) regulates all licensed Realtors in the state. CalBRE (also known as BRE and formerly known as DRE) administers real estate licenses and also oversees disciplinary hearings for allegations of ethical violations against by Realtors.

A license revocation hearing is a serious matter. That's why it's important that you take your hearing seriously right from the start. If you're a Realtor in California and you have your license revoked, you will not be able to do your job. And even if you get your real estate license reinstated, your reputation as a real estate agent or broker could be ruined.

That's why it's critical that you contact the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton as soon as possible to discuss the details of your case. Based in Costa Mesa and serving clients throughout Orange County, our law firm has decades of experience representing Realtors and individuals who believe their rights were violated by their Realtor.

Common Legal Issues

The California Constitution states a professional license can only be revoked or suspended if clear and convincing evidence proves that the license holder acted in a dishonest or unethical manner. Examples include:

  • Real estate agents or brokers who facilitate the sale of commercial properties or residential properties built with defective materials or faulty methods
  • Realtors lying to prospective buyers or sellers
  • Real estate brokers who provide legal advice (which is against the law in California)
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Breach of contract related issues

For instance, after a property sale closes, if the structure develops black mold due to leaky pipes, roofing or windows - leading to damp walls and mold growth - the broker handling the sale for either buyer or seller could lose his or her license.

Due to the complex factors that must be considered in any real estate claim pertaining to construction defects, California real estate license revocation hearings can be very confusing and time-consuming. Fortunately, our law firm can help you every step of the way.
