To work as an estate agent in the UK you will need to take a DBS check.

DBS checks are formal background checks carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service who are a public body sponsored by the Home Office.

The purpose of the search is to keep the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, safe. DBS checks are necessary for all frontline roles in the UK.

A basic DBS check for an estate agent will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. ...more

DBS checks for estate agents became a legal requirement in 1974 with the introduction of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. The act sets out all the roles across the UK workforce which involve a degree of interaction with the public.

All roles listed in the act, including estate agents, are legally obliged to undergo a DBS check as part of the employment procedure to ensure only those suitable for frontline work are employed within the UK.

As an estate agent, your contact with the public is at a lower level so you will only need a basic DBS check to confirm your suitability for the role. The basic DBS is a first tier search which will not require you to disclose any spent convictions.

Spent convictions are convictions which have passed the rehabilitation period and are considered “spent”.

Your basic DBS check can be requested by you or your employer.
