UBank UHomeLoan Fixed Rate

Rates and Fees verified correct on December 6th, 2016

The UBank UHomeLoan Fixed Rate can give you the security of knowing your interest rate won't change

One of the benefits of fixing in your interest rate is the certainty that your repayments can’t increase throughout the fixed term. This could be ideal for anyone who wants predictable repayments for a safe family budget. It could also be great for investors who want a level of assurance that their investment loan costs are fixed.

UBank offers a range of fixed rates for different terms, and is backed by the National Australia Bank (NAB), one of Australia's big four banks.

Pros

  • There is no redraw facility on the fixed home loan during the fixed term
  • There is a Rate Lock fee which only applies if you choose the Rate Lock option

Are you eligible for a UBank UHomeLoan Fixed Rate?

To qualify for the UBank UHomeloan Fixed Rate you must:

  • Be earning a PAYG income from an employer, meaning your main source of income is not rent, Centrelink payments, superannuation or family payments
  • Never have declared bankruptcy
  • Never have committed a financial crime
  • Be an Australian resident with an Australian residential address

Features and benefits of this home loan

The UBank UHomeLoan Fixed Rate loan is suitable for refinancing and new purchases. This means if you’re currently paying a higher rate of interest with another lender, you could save money by refinancing with UBank. You’ll reduce the amount of interest you pay on your mortgage, slashing your monthly repayments.

    • Split loan options: You’re able to split your loan so that a portion of it is set at the fixed rate, while the remaining portion stays on a variable rate. UBank will allow up to four account splits, which can be great for people wanting separated payment or accounting arrangements for investment or personal uses.
    • No monthly account fees: This saves you over the course of the life of the loan.
    • No application fees : There are no application fees for the UBank UHomeLoan; however, you will have to pay a $395fee to lock in your rates in case rates rise before your loan has settled.
    • Maximum loan-to-value ration of 80%: The minimum loan amount available is $100,000. The maximum loan amount is capped at $2,000,000.
    • Payments can be set to principal and interest: This means a portion of every payment you make covers the interest due and the remaining portion reduces your initial balance.
    • Repayment flexibility: Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Making more regular repayments saves you more money in interest, and can better suit how you're paid.
    • Fees may apply: Keep in mind that break fees may apply if you pay off your fixed rate home loan early. This may include selling the property or refinancing your loan over to another lender before the end of the fixed term. If you know you’re likely to sell your home within that time, you may benefit by choosing a shorter fixed rate term or remaining on a variable rate so you can avoid break fees.
    • Additional repayments: If your loan was approved on or after 28 September 2013, you can make up to $20,000 in additional repayments during the fixed term. For all other loans you may be charged break fees for making additional payments into your fixed rate home loan. If you want to make additional repayments you may want to consider choosing a split facility. If you make additional repayments on the variable rate portion of your loan, you can apply to have your remaining payments recalculated. This may be a considerable benefit if you happen to receive a large lump sum that you want to pay into your mortgage. UBank will work out your reduced repayment amounts and the remaining loan term based on your new balance.
    • Accessibility: You can access your home loan account at any time using UBank’s secure online banking portal. You can log in and view your statements, as well as see any payments you’ve made and interest amounts charged. You can also change your payment frequency via your online banking account.

Information button Note: There is no redraw facility available on a fixed rate home loan with UBank. The redraw feature is only available on variable rate home loans, so if you wish to use this facility you may need to think about splitting your loan.

Fees

  • Break costs $Varies. You will need to pay break costs if you intend to repay all or any part of your loan early.
  • Application fee $395. This fee is charged to protect against any interest rate change.

      Hi Jelly,
      thanks for the question.

      Unfortunately we’re currently unaware of any mortgage brokers who include UBank on their lending panel, but most mortgage brokers should be aware of their product and can help answer questions about whether or not it would suit you.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

    How much is the exit fee/termination fee of this 3 year fixed rate loan?

      Belinda | April 20, 2016

      Hi Sew,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      The break fee for the Ubank UHomeLoan Fixed Rate will vary depending on the economic conditions at the time, the loan size, and when exactly in the loan period you request the break.

      As an estimate, it may start at around a few hundred dollars but it does depend on a range of factors as mentioned above.

      If you would like to be quoted a figure for this fee, please get in touch with Ubank directly.

      Kind regards,
      Belinda
