These changes follow the substantial four and five-year fixed rate increases by Westpac on Wednesday, and are the latest in a slew of changes made to fixed mortgages in recent months.

        UBank home loan rate increases 

        Today UBank raised the interest rate on a single fixed home loan by 10 basis points. 

        The UHomeLoan Fixed three-year loan with principal and interest (P&I) repayments has had its interest rate increased to 1.85% p.a from 1.75% p.a (comparison rate 2.24% p.a comparison rate*). 

        This change applies to owner-occupiers only, and is available for customers with a maximum LVR of 80 (20% deposit minimum). 

        Just this week, NAB, which owns UBank, had its purchase of neobank 86 400 confirmed, meaning 86 400 and UBank will eventually be merged together. 

        UBank last changed home loan interest rates in January 2021, when it cut shorter-term fixed rates by 20 basis points.
