Does Checking Your Credit Score Regularly Affect Your Credit Report?

There is actually nothing wrong with checking your personal credit history regularly. It won’t affect your credit scores in any way. Why is this possible? The reasonable answer to this lies on the two types of inquiries.

checking your credit score regularly

First is the result of your application for credit or any transactions initiated. When you apply for new or more credit, this type is being provided to lenders. This serves as an important basis for lenders. Inquiries that are the result of an application you submitted can indicate that you have additional debt not yet shown as an account on your credit report.

The second is the result of a review that does not involve your credit account. Unlike the first type, this is shown only to you. This does not in any way cannot affect your credit scores and are never received by lenders. Your personal requests of your own credit report, reviews of your credit score (for employment purposes for example), account reviews b your existing lenders, and reviews for making pre-approved credits are included in this type of inquiry.

What most people overstate is the idea that checking your credit scores regularly has a big impact on your credit score. Truth is, recent inquiries are listed as a credit score factor but have little impact on credit decisions.

If you have no negative information such as criminal records, unpaid bills, and late payments in your credit history, there is no reason for your application to be declined just because you checked credit score regularly. Point is, lender’s decision does not rely on how frequent you check your credit score. They focus more on your negative issues (collection accounts and late payments). Thus, if you’ve been declined solely because of your inquiries, you have the reason to submit an appeal.
