What happens if your land contract holder does not sign off on the contract after I refinanced via bank?

My brother sold me my home on a land contract for 5 years then 2 years later pressured me to refinance via the bank. He had to knock off $ 8000 off the selling price because the amount owed was more than the bank would finance. We entered into a verbal agreement outside of the mortgage for me to pay the $ 8000. I had assumed that he had contacted the same financing bank who also was handling the land contract as a broker to tell them the land contract was paid but he did not and failed to tell me this. He provided a warranty deed with the mortgage sale. Would he not be required to cancel the land contract? He wants me to pay him personally but refuses to sign off on the land contract first. I told him I will pay the broker bank my payments on the $ 8000 unless he cancells the land contract. What are my rights?
