Hard Inquiries vs. Soft Inquiries: Know the Difference
A hard inquiry occurs when a lender or creditor checks your credit as part of an application process for new credit. This can be for various types of credit applications, such as mortgages, loans, credit cards, and insurance policies. While hard inquiries may only drop your credit score by a few points, having too many in a short period can negatively impact your credit score.
Soft inquiries, on the other hand, typically happen when a company checks your credit history for a background check, or when a lender or credit card issuer prequalifies you for an offer. These inquiries don’t affect your credit scores and are not visible to other potential creditors.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Regardless of whether your application is approved, a hard inquiry from LexisNexis will stay on your credit report for up to two years. These inquiries are recorded by one or more of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
Dealing with Unauthorized Inquiries
If you see an unfamiliar inquiry on your credit report, or if you’re certain you didn’t initiate the inquiry, contact LexisNexis and ask for an explanation. The creditor’s name should be listed under the hard inquiry section of your credit report.
