Unfortunately the way the deed is written means that the property would be 1/2 owned by your sister-in-law's estate and 1/2 owned by your brother's estate. This means that neither estate can sell the property alone. Both executors will be required to agree to the listing and sale of the property. The sale proceeds will be divided equally among both estates.
If your sister-in-law does not have children, her estate will likely distribute all remaining proceeds, after payment of he debts, to your brother's estate based on Ohio intestate
succession laws. However, prior to being able to distribute assets the property must be sold by both estates and the debts paid.
