HMCTS has kept a central register of all applications for warrants of entry since 2018. The data sets out how many applications are successful or refused. However, the figures represent all warrants of entry under the Gas and Electricity Acts, so for example, warrants for the purpose of installing a prepayment meter cannot be isolated from the data. HMCTS is reviewing what further improvements we can make to the information we hold and may collect in the future.
