Florida Realtors<sup>®</sup>: Report Unlicensed Real Estate Activity

ORLANDO, Fla. – To help protect homebuyers and sellers from unlicensed real estate practitioners, Florida Realtors® wants to spread the word that unlicensed real estate activity is a crime.

It is a third-degree felony in Florida for someone to act as a real estate broker or sales associate without a license. Officials with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) urge the public to report unlicensed activity by calling its toll-free hotline at (866) 532-1440.

The department’s Bureau of Unlicensed Activity is responsible for coordinating unlicensed activity through its regional program administrators, as well as providing information to consumers and other regulators regarding the dangers of using unlicensed individuals.
