As a result of the online services transition, your firm name, licensee name or business address may have been inadvertently misspelled or abbreviated. If you would like to correct or change this information, KREC's $10 change fee will be waived for 30 days. Please make corrections by midnight on Friday, Dec. 22, using the online services system. After that time, a $10 fee will be reinstated for changes.

How to obtain your FBI Background check
The Kentucky State Police Automated Fingerprint Identification System will be undergoing a system upgrade from October 30th thru November 14th. This will require the system to be completely down. KSP will be unable to process any fingerprint based background check during that time. This will cause a delay in the processing of applications at the Kentucky Real Estate Commission as we await to receive applicant background reports from KSP. We appreciate your patience.
