Does the pre-approval check affect our credit score?

No, it will not. The credit check conducted during pre-approval is a soft enquiry, and soft enquiries do not affect your credit score. This is a great way to get an initial indication of your borrowing capacity.

After you have received pre-approval and made an offer on a property, we will do a comprehensive credit check, which does leave an enquiry on your file.
