Home sales are held up; Baltimore ransomware attack cripples systems vital to real estate deals

The ransomware attack on Baltimore city’s government computers has shut down systems essential for completing home sales, putting a halt to property deals during one of the real estate industry’s busiest times of year.

People buying homes rely on the city to verify that properties are free of liens and to complete the recording of new deeds. Title companies also use information from the city to calculate outstanding water bills.
