What is a Credit Trigger Lead and How Does it Affect Me?

Did you know that when you apply for a mortgage loan and the lender pulls a credit report, it triggers an inquiry that credit bureaus may sell to other mortgage lenders?

Lenders pull a credit report using certain “codes” to demonstrate they have permissible purpose to do so. These codes trigger to the national credit reporting agencies such as Equifax, Experian, Innovis, and TransUnion, that a consumer is shopping for a mortgage.

This is what is known as a credit trigger lead. This will contain your contact information and expose you to unsolicited sales calls from other lenders and third-party vendors. This practice is not illegal, but may prove to be a nuisance. 

Contact one of our Mortgage Advisors for information on how you can stop trigger-lead harassment.
