If her father died intestate and there are no other legal heirs, then only she will be the only legal heir and the property of her father devolves to her.

Her husband cannot get share in his fatherinlaw's property.

the law says in the absence of children it reverts back to the heirs of father but  not clear in case of children being her absolute property her husband can also have share  as class I heir along with children...No clear law provision is made in case female has issue and she died intestate inheriting her father property..  Her husband  urges he can  claim share under section 15 (a) defending that she has issue and property inherited became her absolute property. Its confusing. children dont want to give share to their father i.e husband of deceased female.. its okay in the absence of issue but what in the presence of children. of them

Hi vaidya.

 Thank you for your question.

What is a legal heir?

An heir is an individual or person who inherits estate or property of his or her ancestor who died without a will

Hindu Succession Act

In this act if a Hindu male dies without leaving a will under class I of Hindu succession act there is list of relatives to who the property will go. Under class II of the act specifies the list of relatives if no one from the class I of relatives is alive. So basically both the class gives the number of relatives who could be considered as legal hair

In your case female inherited the property from her father and both of them are not alive. So next legal hair for the property are the two sons      

Let me know if you have further queries

Regards

Adiga
