FAQ Frequently asked questions on too many credit inquiries pulled

I applied for business loans. What can I do if I had a lot of inquiries pulled?
Review the inquiries to see if you did apply and submit applications or requests with all
of the lenders. If not then you can dispute the inquires that were not valid with the credit bureau
and request they be removed. If you intend on applying for more business loans then you can ask
in advance if they credit pulls will be hard or soft pulls. A hard pull is still acceptable if you are interested
in the program.

Credit inquires are the least damaging to your credit compared to late
payments and other derogatory credit items. Your credit score typically will recover
from credit inquires more faster than late payments.

report and tell them to use my copy and not pull my credit.
Your own copy of your credit report is not accepted by lenders. They want to pull
their own credit report and sometimes look at all three credit bureaus. They do not want to
begin accepting outside credit reports. Consumers get credit outdated credit reports from many
different third parties vendors that may not contain the most updated information. Those reports have different formats
and may not have anything that happened since the consumer pulled their own report, such as filing
bankruptcy or any newly reported derogatory credit. Lenders do not want it to be known that they
are accepting outside credit reports from consumers otherwise some consumers will demand it and lenders
can be accused of inconsistent and discriminatory business, credit and lending practices from one applicant to another.

The main way too many credit inquires hurt your credit is by lowering your credit score short term.
This is especially true if you a significant number of inquires in a short period of times such as one or two weeks.

issue pre-approvals based on basic numerical factors. Later in almost all cases, credit will be checked
before an offer is made and funding takes place. You should not expect to be able to get a business loan
without personal credit being pulled.

Credit Inquiries you cannot avoid

“Credit Inquiries” has been a topic of much conversation and concern in recent years.  The following is current information you should know about credit inquiries you cannot avoid.

Do not try to avoid virtually all credit inquiries.   A growing number of people do not want any, or virtually any credit inquiries to be pulled on them even if they are applying for credit.  They tell lenders that they want to be considered for the financing without their credit being pulled.  There are “credit inquires you cannot avoid”.
This is not feasible or realistic, especially if the request is in the name of an individual.  In most of these cases, these request are in the name of a small business and the owner wants the request to stand in the name of the business by itself without their name.
If a business has less than 35 employees, in most cases the lender requires the owner’s credit to be reviewed.

Virtually no lenders will decide your loan request with a consumer obtained bureau.  Consumers can contact credit reporting agencies as well as outside vendors that provide bureaus and get all 3 credit reports.   These reports are not the same reports that lenders obtain.  Consumer reports are formatted differently and are simpler than the lender’s report.  The consumer version often provides more written explanation and sometimes less numerical detail.  Consumers will sometimes take these reports and tell the lenders that they want the lenders to use their consumer obtained reports rather than what the lenders use.   However, the lender’s version is usually more current than the consumer’s version.  The consumer version may be two or three weeks old.  The lender feels that the consumer’s version may not reflect items on the bureau that may have happened within those most recent two or three weeks.

There are many outside vendors that provide intermediate party credit reports.  Lenders are not, and should not be expected to know whether those vendors provide updated and satisfactory information.  Lenders are not obligated to use those reports.  As a result, consumers should not expect to avoid credit inquires by demanding that lenders use their consumer credit report version.

In terms of credit issues that may be considered “bad”, credit inquiries are probably the least worst offenders.  Credit scores recover from credit inquiries faster than just about any other personal credit item that is considered derogatory.

When Credit Inquiries begin to hurt credit

Inquiries will have a very limited affect on a credit file if the number of inquires is small.   Credit inquiries begin to hurt a credit file more significantly if the number of credit inquires is more than about 5 in one month.    When some of these inquiries are from Car Dealers or Mortgage companies, they may not affect a person’s credit score at all.  If the number of inquiries is 5 in the last 30 days, try to minimize the number of inquires in the next 30 to 60 days.

Once an individual does have more than 10-15 inquiries within a month, as long as they go a few months without almost any inquiries, their score will recover quickly.  Their credit score will likely be close to what it was within 2 to 4 months.

In summary, are credit inquiries really that bad?    In many cases, a few credit inquiries on a credit file within 30 days have a minimal impact on someone’s credit bureau score.
