My husband and his two siblings are heirs to his parent's

My husband and his two siblings are heirs to his parent's estate. The sister is the executor and has made a lowball offer on the house. The brothers discussed the offer and basically said that they would accept that lowball number with a number of contingencies to be discussed. The discussion about the contingencies has never happened. Now she wants them to sign a warranty deed to transfer the deed to her. On the form it said for valuable consideration paid but yet no money has exchanged hands. In the meantime we have decided to reject her lowball offer since she hasn't communicated in over a month and made a substantially higher offer on the property. She says that she rejects the offer because my husband and his brother supposedly already agreed to her verbal offer. 1. Is the verbal offer enforceable since she never met with them to go over contingencies and no money has exchanged hands? 2. Can an executor refuse a higher offer than their own offer especially since her offer was $40,000 below an appraised fair market value? My understanding is that is a breach of fiduciary duty. 3. If the two brothers decide to give in and sell it to her for a lower than fair market value should they sign the Warranty Deed when no money has exchanged hands and no written contract of terms has been presented? 4. Is a breach of fiduciary duties ever a criminal offense in the state of Ohio?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Papers have been drawn up that she wants my husband and I and his brother to sign. Just a warranty deed that according to her transfers the property to her. It says on the form for valuable consideration paid, grant with General Warranty Covenants to Lynn M. Cantor...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

My question is I have an upcoming court date on the 27th of

Good morning, my question is I have an upcoming court date on the 27th of February this is a status case for a pre-existing criminal case I've served my two years of probation and been in complete compliance of my court order I do still have remaining days left to do for my swap. The situation has arrived at work where I have a chance for a very large advancement opportunity to improve my career. I was told by the Circuit Court in DuPage Illinois that my only option is to bring the case forward, then to ask for a continuance because I will be unable to be at court on the 27th.because of this work situation. I'm concerned about moving mycase forward because I don't want the judge to tell me I am not in total compliance cuz I have not finished all my swap yet. I'm very concerned and what potential outcome Maybe any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you very muchJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm in IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Has what been filed reported? A continuance removing the case forward no it is notJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I have a friend who has been working as Physician's Asst and

I have a friend who has been working as Physician's Asst and would like to set up his own practice, rather than work for someone. He has a trust he will inherit some day with about $400 K in it. His parents are still living. I have been doing some business consulting with him. He would like to access the trust funds for the purpose of setting up his practice. His parents have mentioned possibly helping him out with a loan. He is hoping his parents could work out giving him the trust while they are still alive. We do not know the details about the trust, other than his parents set it up. If the parents set it up, is it likely they can work out an earlier access for him to the trust funds? He figures to make an extra $40K per year by being able to open a practice. He would like to sound intelligent when asking his parents to do this. Maybe he could ask some questions about type of trust. A short education of how it would or would not be possible would be very helpful. He feels if he has a good understanding of how it might work, it will make it easier to get his parents to work it out, if they can.
