Money transfer to current account - will it show up on credit check

I need to get my hands on about £12K for a few days, but I don't want to show up on a credit check (I want to pay for my stamp duty on a house purchase, as money from family will take a few weeks to filter through, and I don't want the mortgage company's credit check on the day of completion to find this out) - will transferring cash to a current account be a problem in this? I will do it 5-7 days before the completion, and will soon clear it out, anyone see any problem with this strategy? Got some 0% long term deals I can access.
