Credit reports lists inquiries, credit scores and credit ratings.

 


Each time a member of the credit bureau requests your file, the request is noted on your file as an inquiry.



When you apply for a loan at a bank for example, a credit inquiry is made to the credit reporting agency. If you apply at 5 banks, then your credit file will reflect that there have been 5 applications. This could send a warning sign to the next borrower you approach.



Some lenders acknowledged that the number of inquiries on a credit report are a factor in evaluating a credit application.



An inquiry shows the name of the company or individual who has requested your credit file and because each inquiry is listed on your credit report, you'll know exactly who has obtained a copy of it. Credit grantors typically request regular updates of your credit file after an account has been opened, when it is being renewed or for limit increases. You can therefore see a complete record of who has requested your credit file and when.
 


Experts recommend that everyone see what is in their credit report at least once a year. If you check your credit file periodically especially before you make any major purchases you'll find out what the banks know and you can make sure there are no surprises ahead.



Not all credit reports are the same.
