Report a defect or request a repair

How to report a defect during your Defects Liability Period or request a repair.

Report a defect

If you're a new homeowner or tenant of a new property, you can report defects through Clixifix during your Defects Liability Period.

About the Defects Liability Period (DLP)
Your DLP starts when your home is handed over from the builder to us. This means that the 12-month period may already be running - or have expired - when you get your keys. 

You can find your DLP end date in your welcome letter. It's also included in My Sage Home, our new customer portal. You can find out more about My Sage Home here.

Clixifix allows you to:

  • Log, track, and manage your defects through a user-friendly platform with direct contact to the defects team
  • Use your Clixifix portal to quickly raise issues and upload images and videos instantly
  • Monitor every stage of the defects process including communication with our contractors
  • Notify the defects team instantly with updates or when works have been completed.

How do I access Clixifix?

We send out invitations to Clixifix so you'll need your invitation email to set up your password and access your account.  

For defect emergencies during office hours (9am-5.30pm Monday-Friday), please call us on 020 4599 3555.

Please note that this is for reporting defects only during your DLP and not for general repairs (see more information about repairs below).
