Professional Licensing

Using Your Attorney to Assist During Licensing Applications

Many industries exist that require owners and other professionals within those businesses to obtain certain licenses to operate within the statute of the law. Regardless of how minute certain procedures seem, one thing you do not want to be in violation of is any form of regulatory compliance.

Among these industries are physicians, contractors, pharmacists, and restaurants. One industry you may not have placed on this list was the real estate sector. In fact, realtors have one of the most heavily scrutinized and meticulous processes for individuals wishing to become licensed.

Using an Attorney for Licensing Applications

Many would-be entrants into the real estate industry employ the services of their attorneys during the licensing process. This may seem extreme, but consider the following pieces of information regarding the situation:

  • Licensing applications exist in industries where consumers need protection.
  • The critical segments of information and vital processes that applicants learn give them knowledge regarding fair and safe practices for doing business.
  • Boards that oversee these licensing applications want to be sure, without any doubt, that individuals who are approved understand these practices.
  • Because of the importance of compliance laws within certain industries, failure to operate without a license could damage the professional futures of individuals in violation.
  • Additionally, fines may be imposed and could lead to possible jail time in the most extreme situations.

Any other area that requires such a critical process warrants the use of an attorney. Why should the real estate license process be any different?

Attention to Detail

Using an attorney for the real estate licensing process doesn’t just protect you from potential mistakes on your end but any injustices during the review process. All applicants are entitled to a fair and unbiased review, and an attorney can ensure you get exactly that.

Using an attorney for becoming a licensed real estate agent will protect you in the following areas of importance:

  • Was everything filled out correctly according to state requirements?
  • Is all of your information accurate and up to date, satisfying all demands from the licensing board?
  • Do you need assistance understanding any language contained within the application?
  • If your application is rejected, do you need help understanding the grounds for denial?
  • In the event of rejection, do you feel like an appeal is warranted?
  • Do you have any type of dispute regarding the denial process?

An attorney can assist with advice regarding whether you have a case for an appeal or dispute. Additionally, ensuring everything is filled out properly and satisfies all requirements from the board will save you a lot of time and potential headaches in the long run. Looking to find out more about any business licenses you may need?
