Is an email a bidding contract on a sell of a home? Amounts

Is an email a bidding contract on a sell of a home? Amounts were presented by seller and buyer agreed to an amount and seller agreed all this by email. Seller has changed his mind and wants more for the house.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, just phone conversation. The email was agreed upon for 3.6 years. My husband had major surgery that kidney was removed and chemo was given. His work did not offer short term disability. I was the only one bringing in money for bills, ect. I spoke with the seller (brother-in-law) who agreed in person that any months not paid until my husband got back to work would be added at the end of the contract. My husband passed away one year exactly on June 11 of this year. I owe the seller nearly $7000. My husband had a small insurance policy with his job just enough to pay funeral cost and a little for savings. I called the seller to pay him off and now he has decided the house is worth more money because we have done some remodels in the years we have been buying it. He now wants more for the house then the original sell proposed to us.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have just the email exchanges and all my money order receipts.

I'm trying to recoup my money from property that I lent my

I'm trying to recoup my money from property that I lent my father to purchase some land in Leona county Texas. I was unaware that the deed was put in my fathers name and my mothers. I also didn't know that my father and brother went in on this listing my brother and his wife on the deed as well. My father passed in 2012 and I just want my money back or sell the land. My brother has taken control of it and won't let anyone on it. He's not payed one red cent to me and I just want what they borrowed from me to purchase the land. Through some research I've found out he's homesteaded the land and his house were he live. I recieved a letter from the county of Leona for takes that he hasn't payed. Which they deducted it from the value. With late fees penalties he owes me quite a bit of money now. I've tried contacting him and he will not respond back and I've had my mother call his wife to ask when they were going to pay and her reply was they can't afford it. Well if he can afford to go buy a new boat and can't pay me is appaling to me. I've got a son in college I'm trying to pay for and he's taking away from my son now. What are my options and can you help me please!!!!!!!!JA: What state is this in? And how old is the boat?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No it hasn't, I just don't have the money to spend on it with my son in college.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can't afford to pay a lawyer but will be more than willing to pay him out of the funds I will receive from the sale of the land.
