Report a repair

Report a defect

Sage is introducing a new system called Clixifix, to help you log and track defects within your Defect Liability Period (DLP). Please note your DLP starts when your home is handed over from the builder to Sage, not when you move in. This means 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.


Clixifix will allow 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

If you have access to the Sage online portal, when you next log in you will see the link to Clixifix where you can set up a new account for reporting on defects. We will send invitations to you for accessing Clixifix from the end of March, so you can create a login and password. Once the system has launched, you will need to wait for your invitation email to access your account to report defects. For defect emergencies during office hours (9am-5:30pm Monday-Friday), please call the Defects Team on 0203 906 6541.

Please note that this is for defects only (during your 12-month DLP) and not for general repairs.
