(as rated by the Mozo community)

8.2 / 10

based on 14 reviews

UBank is an online bank which is backed by NAB - one of Australia’s big four banks. Having launched in 2008, UBank has since expanded its offerings from term deposits to home loans. As a direct bank, UBank doesn’t have a branch network but borrowers can seek assistance online or over the phone from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday and 8am-6pm Saturday & Sunday (AEST).

If you love the convenience of online banking and feel comfortable with managing your loan online, UBank is definitely a home loan provider worthy of your attention. You might also be happy to hear that UBank received the major 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Home Lender bank of the Year, as well as awards in four separate categories including: Low Cost Home Loan, Split Home Loan, Fixed Rate Home Loan and Investor Fixed Home Loan.

What home loans do UBank offer?

Fixed Rate Home Loans Fixed Rate Home Loans

With a fixed home loan from UBank you can get repayment certainty for 1, 3 or 5 years on loans starting from $100,000 (up to a maximum of $2,000,000). There are no application or ongoing fees but you may be charged a different fixed rate depending on the purpose of your loan (i.e. home ownership vs investment) and whether you choose a principal and interest or interest only payment option. You have the option to make extra repayments during the fixed term of your loan (up to a maximum of $20,000) but you won’t have the flexibility of a redraw facility should you need to free up funds later. There is also a rate lock feature available where you can secure the advertised interest rate up until the settlement of the loan if you’re losing sleep over possible interest rate rises in the future (fees apply).

Variable Rate Home Loans Variable Rate Home Loans

UBank offers a great range of variable home loans to choose from depending on whether you’re an owner occupier or an investor and if you prefer principal and interest or interest only payments. UBank’s variable rates are available on loans starting from $100,000 (up to a maximum of $2,000,000) and you can borrow up to 80% of your property’s value. You won’t have to pay any application or ongoing monthly fees to access the full range of features including extra repayment flexibility, a redraw facility if you’re ahead of your scheduled repayments (minimum $1,000) and the choice between weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments. Plus if you’ve held this loan for 3 years or your fixed rate has expired, you may be eligible for UBank’s loyalty rate discount (conditions apply).

Lowest rates no frills

Lowest home loan interest rate, no frills, underwritten by NAB. No branches, can take a while to set up with all the paperwork but once you do, you will be saving tens of thousands of dollars. Well worth the effort!

Love this banks low rates. However I hate their redraw facility and how it seems to be in a constant state of recalculation. Payments are deducted from redraw before being debited from your account and the whole process takes too long to recalculate once you make payment. It takes weeks for accurate amounts to reflect and the money visible to the customer is always lower than what is actually in there. Needs to be fixed urgently.

When I had a mortgage, they had by far the best rate for a mortgage without an offset account (wasn't an investment property so didn't need it). None of the other banks could come close. Also got Aussie call centres so they provided great customer service. Can't really fault them besides not having an offset account.
