The computer system at the Recorder of Deeds and Cadastral Divisions has been offline all week, posing a difficulty for those trying to record real estate transactions. Government House and Lt. Gov. Tregenza Roach’s office did not respond to emails Wednesday and Thursday requesting information on the situation. Thursday afternoon, Lt. Gov. Tregenza Roach issued a brief statement saying his office is investigating a possible breach in its computer systems.

“Our team is actively working on a resolution of this issue. Although the divisions are faced with this challenge, some manual fixes have been put in place to provide services to the public in the interim. As a result, there will be delays experienced when any service is requested from these two divisions,” Roach said in the statement.
