I thought I froze my credit but my new apartment did a hard inquiry on me
I thought I froze my credit with the big 3 agencies. I applied to an apartment yesterday and they said they would run my credit. I informed them that my credit was frozen so I’d have to unfreeze. They said it was just a soft inquiry so it should be fine. They ran the check and it came back, I was approved for the apartment.
I got emails from credit karma and 2 of my credit cards that monitor my credit and they all said that a hard inquiry was done on my credit. No big deal as far as that, but does this means my credit wasn’t properly frozen?
