Hard Pull

In financial terms, a Hard pull is when an outside party requests to review a person’s history with credit. The process is started by the customer when they apply for credit in some way. An example of a customer initiated situation is when one applies for a loan on a home. Once processed, the hard pull will lower the person’s credit score for a short period of time. Some institutions also refer to this type of pull as a “hard inquiry”.
