Soft Credit Inquiry

Soft Credit Inquiry

A credit inquiry (or pull) that gathers the bare essentials of a person's financial record. While a soft credit inquiry will show up on a credit report, it is only visible to the individual owner and has zero impact on their credit score. Soft credit pulls allows lenders to assess the eligibility of potential borrowers. A person checking their own credit report is also considered a soft inquiry.
