Technical Description and Product Features
SoftPreQual is a simple-to-use, smart web page that lenders include on their websites to turn consumers into borrowers. When used by consumers, it orders and delivers a single-bureau ExperianTM credit report. It posts a soft inquiry to the bureau, so the consumer’s score will not be impacted. The returned credit report cannot be used as an application for credit, and the lender will need to order a full, hard-inquiry report when the borrower is ready to submit a full loan application.
Disclosures that the lender normally would need to deliver (risk-based pricing notices and declination letters) are not required. saves the time and hassle of not having to disclose an offer of credit if the borrower doesn’t prequalify.
- Is only a prequalifying report and is not meant to be used for firm offers of credit
- Posts to ExperianTM as a soft inquiry
- Is fully private label friendly — your brand, your name, nothing else
- Compatible with existing bureau codes
