TitleWhat is a soft search?

As LiveLend loans are only available through popular comparison websites, such as ClearScore , and Experian , you’ll see us pop up as a potential option to consider following a soft search (also known as a quotation search)  of your credit history. Soft searches are completed by lenders like LiveLend to confirm your eligibility for a product. They’re different from credit application searches (also known as hard searches), which happen when you actually apply for a product. Too many credit application searches in a short space of time can damage your credit score.

Soft searches take the guesswork out of applying for credit and protect your score.
