    Applying for Finance just after accepting another agreement

    Applying for Finance just after accepting another agreement 12th Oct 16 at 10:50 PM
    I've recently been accepted for finance for an item worth £1000 and was wondering if this will have any effect on me applying for finance with another company/broker in the next few weeks?

    My credit score is fine with no missed payments etc, but will applying for finance in a short space of time (even though accepted) effect my next chance ?

    Many thanks

    It could but it will depend if the new finance is reported as activated yet, or still showing as the credit search.

    The credit search may have a minimal impact but I wouldn't expect that to result in a decline. If the credit agreement is being reported as active, then they new application will take that into account when considering affordability and exposure.
