Russ: I see that your question is 45 days past, but...lenders are now required to run your credit prior to funding your loan.
What they are looking for are new accounts and increases in balances and, in some cases, current late payments.

New requirements do ask for a credit report to be run prior to close. Generally, credit scores will drop due to high credit limits being at 50% or more, new accounts, late payments.
What is being looked at is new debt. Are those new balances or accounts going to effect your ratios? Then you could be looking at change in your qualifications.
Great advice is to discuss this ASAP with your loan officer as this could be a potential problem especially if you are tight on your ratios.

You should be talking with your agent and lender who are helping you
It would depend what happen and why it happened. It may or may not effect your loan. Talk to your lender

It may if they have have not given you the final loan approval. They do tend to check all details again in the final review stage.

Industry standards is for lenders to do a soft credit pull to check for any new accounts, charges or changes on y our credit or fico score.

You need to discuss with your agent and lender ASAP. Obviously YOU did "something" . Either you bought something or you were late on paying something. As others have already said, when you are in the process of getting a mortgage you cannot "do" anything.

Yes, the lender will pull your credit report at least once, maybe twice just before closing and yes, if this isn't fixed there will be a big problem.

Best to get it corrected now if possible.

Yes, they will check and yes, it could impact your mortgage and ability to buy the home.

Why did it drop? That is a huge issue and a large drop. Generally, Realtors and Lenders warn buyers not to do anything that will change their credit.

My best advice is to pin down the cause of the point drop and arrange swift payment to that creditor you owe money to...then you can get a rapid re-score.

How did that happen??

Yes....... they will check your credit prior to closing, and yes, it may affect your loan..........weren't you advised not to do anything that could change your credit scores? No big purchases........no late payments..............nothing !

Get on the phone tomorrow and call your mortgage rep and agent.......

Good luck....

They will check for changes in credit prior to funding. If it is because you paid something late, then it is probably going to affect the loan. How much or whether it kills the deal depends on too many factors to comment without knowing your file. Contact your lender ASAP. Best of luck
