You may see an inquiry on your credit report from Credco if you have recently applied for a mortgage or refinancing on your home. Mortgage Lenders use CoreLogic Credo to obtain a merged credit report from the three large credit bureaus Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Some Credco reports also contain information from their own databases.
If you see an inquiry on your credit report from Credco and you have not been working with mortgage lender, you can dispute the inquiry with the credit reporting agency. Hard inquiries on your credit report can affect your credit score, do not let inquiries that shouldn’t be on your credit report go undisputed. I could cost you in higher insurance premiums and higher interest rates.
If the Credco inquiry is legitimate, make sure the report is as well. Errors reported on a CoreLogic Credco merged credit report or a CoreLogic Credco CreditIQ report can be damaging. They could result in denial of a home loan and/or higher interest rates.

The CoreLogic Credco CreditIQ report combines their traditional merged report from the three large credit bureaus along with CoreLogic Credco’s own proprietary data. This data gets integrated into existing sections of the standard credit report.
The CreditIQ from CoreLogic Credo may include the following information not usually found on traditional credit reports:
