    Checking my credit score etc 14th Mar 17 at 7:12 PM

    When a loan company or similar performs a search on your financial history using a credit ref agy it will often impact your credit score.

    Is this also the case if I were to sign up to say check my file to check everything is correct and up to date?

    I would like to check my file before my mortgage provider has a look and would not want to cause another search to be listed against me.

    Cheers for any info

    Checking you file doesn't impact your file in any way.
