Mozo Review   UBank UHomeLoan (1 Year Fixed) Review

Last updated: 12 July 2019.

What's hot:
  • Low fixed 2.99% interest rate (3.86% comparison rate*) in the first year

  • Free extra repayments up to $20,000 (per year)

  • No service fee

What's not:
  • $395 application fee

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re looking to take advantage of a low 1 year fixed home loan rate, UBank’s UHomeLoan (1 Year Fixed) could be a good place to start and end your search. UBank offers a competitive fixed 2.99% rate (3.86% comparison rate*) in the first year as well as no ongoing fees throughout the life of your loan. Not only that, this loan gives borrowers the flexibility to make weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments, as well as to make free extra repayments up to $20,000 a year.

Key features:

UBank’s UHomeLoan (1 Year Fixed) offers one of the lowest rates in Mozo’s database at 2.99% (3.86% comparison rate*) in the first year of your loan. You can borrow up to 80% of the property value, anywhere between $100,000 and $2,000,000. 

An attractive feature of the UBank UHomeLoan (1 Year Fixed) is that you can make repayments at a frequency that suits you, whether that’s weekly, fortnightly or monthly. 

But that’s not all. If you make your regular repayments on time, you’ll be able to make free extra repayments of up to $20,000 p.a. Make sure you tread with a bit of caution before you throw all your money at your home loan however. The UBank UHomeLoan doesn’t have a redraw facility, so you won’t be able to access those extra contributions if you need to later on. 

Not only do borrowers receive a low rate in the first year and flexible repayment options on this loan, there are no ongoing fees. Keep in mind though, UBank does charge a $395 application fee straight off the bat. 

Also remember that after the first year, your loan will revert from the 1st year fixed rate to a higher 3.92% interest rate.

Who it's good for:

The UBank UHomeLoan (1 Year Fixed) could be the perfect home loan for someone wanting both repayment stability and flexibility, but most importantly, a seriously competitive rate for the first year of the loan.

Any catches?

While there aren’t any ongoing fees on this home loan, keep in mind you will be charged a $395 fee when you first apply.
