if it is his self aquired property then you dont have any problem in buying it.

ask the daughters and son to join as witness in the sale deed...otherwwise too, buying seems not any problem if your father-in-law is actua title holder and not just  acquired under inheretance or joint hindu family property.

Thanks to all for your reply.

Yes , it is his own self aquired property. Only problem is whether his 2nd married daughter will accept for join as witness.

Son is not an issue, he can sign in sale deed document.

If it is self aquired property then ask him to gift it to you as it may save some stamp duty expenses also, and for gift, no other people's consent required.
