Hard inquiries fall off your credit report after two years. They only hurt your credit score for one year (12 months). Lenders that see more than six in the same 12 month period may deny you for being too high risk. Removing hard inquiries should be a top priority before applying for new credit.
In general, you need to meet one of the following three requirements in order to remove an inquiry from your report:
Yes, your credit score does go up when a hard inquiry drops off.
Hard inquiries are used to track how much credit you've applied for in the last two years. When lenders see you applying a lot during this period, they may deny you for new credit.
Once the hard inquiry falls off, lenders never know you had it.
If a credit check results in a hard inquiry then it will take 2-years to fall off your credit report.
Typically, a hard inquiry results in a drop of 5 points or less on your credit report. The better your credit, the lower the point drop.
Your score will go up by around 5 points when a hard inquiry falls off after 2 years.
