Ask them to provide a copy of the will. Your husband can file a demand request with the court to press the issue. If the deed contains no such restriction, I think the family is outta luck.

if he bought the property (from his parents), the house wasn't part of the estate, so the will is irrelevant. I doubt a will with such a clause is legally binding to begin with. If they want to keep the house in the family, they can buy it. mother and siblings are full of ****.

Your relatives are as crazy as a one winged bat. The house is now owned by your husband, and the remainder of the family has nothing to say about what he does with the house. In fact, those who live there are now your husband's tenants, and he can evict them, if he so chooses. NO language in a will can change that.

IF there is a codicil in the will stating the home must stay in the family, that is likely very easy to have a court void if it comes to that. These terms are generally unenforceable as they put an undue burden on the person inheriting. Further, if the mother inherited and then sold to your husband, who took out a mortgage loan and paid it off to boot, he is not bound by the terms of the will anyway. He did not inherit, he purchased. They are free to purchase it back from you if they want, but until then they have no legal position on the disposition of this property any longer.
