Note: As a result of a recent data clean-up, these figures vary from previous published statistics.

The statistics on Civil Property Possession Applications consist of any proceeding commenced in the Supreme Court where the plaintiff is seeking the possession of property. The majority of these matters relate to a mortgagee claiming delivery of possession and/or the payment of money secured by a mortgage. The Supreme Court is unable to provide any further information relating to claims for possession of property or mortgage defaults.

Any request for statistical information must be made by formal application to the Principal Registrar of the Supreme Court and is subject to the fees set out in the Supreme Court (Fees) Regulations 2002.
