The soft search tool means that while enquiring about taking out a new finance shows up on your credit file, it will only be visible to you. If you go ahead and apply for a financial product, but the lender rejects you, the failed application will be recorded on your credit file. We want to do our best to make sure this doesn’t happen because we don’t want to harm your credit score.

You can perform a soft search as frequently as you like as it will not affect your credit score. We do suggest that if you have applied with UK Car Finance, that you don’t then go and apply elsewhere – as some lenders will use hard search when checking your credit files and too many checks leave a negative impression.

If at all you’re struggling with credit, there are ways to rebuild and improve your credit score. You can find out more information by reading our blog on how to build your credit score.
