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

I have a deed of trust and warranty deed on a property I

I have a deed of trust and warranty deed on a property I purchased. It was an owner financed deal, but we did go through a title company. Once the property was paid off, I requested the seller file a release of the deed and he never did it. I'm finding out 4 years later that the release was never filed and now I cannot locate the seller to get him to file the release. What are my options? Does the title insurance cover something like this?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? Not for this question, but they might if you need additional services.
