Yes, your credit score can affect your ability to get a home equity loan. Lenders typically look at your credit score and history as one of the key factors in determining your eligibility for a loan. A higher credit score generally indicates that you have a good credit history and are likely to repay the loan, making you a more favorable borrower. On the other hand, a lower credit score can signal that you may be a higher risk borrower, which could make it more challenging to get approved for a home equity loan. If your credit score is low, you might face higher interest rates or stricter terms on the loan, or you might be denied the loan altogether.
