I may have missed 'sin', but 2Peter 2:7 gives Lot the seal of righteousness. The jewish 2nd temple writings make him out to be sexually sinful (Jubilees), followed later by the Mishnah. Which makes the 2 Peter writer curious.

Lot's wife however, gets nailed, but it's somewhere between disagreeing with her hubby (Clement), turning back (Luke 17:32), or just being salt-ified (the command was from an angel, not YHWH).

Oddly, the daughters seem to get off scott-free for the most part.

In Topic Guide type Lot and consult the various articles listed (AYBD discusses the possibility of 'sin'). Jesus talks about Lot (and Noah) in Luke 17:28-30 and it appears Peter expanded upon that in 2 Peter 2:5-8 (I got these from a Basic Search of my ESV bible for sin AND <Person Lot (person)>).

Here's an article I found on the Gospel Coalition's website that may help in researching the answer to your question:
