1) No permission required to be obtained from grandchildren as the property is self acquired.

2) The Will and its stipulations hold good

Indian law concerning Hindus is very clear that self acquired intestate (no will made) property only of the deceased male/female Hindu is inherited by his/her sons and daughters in equal proportion along with the surviving spouse. The grandsons or granddaughters have no right to inherit or claim any share in the property of the grandfather or grandmother if their own father or mother are alive.

If husband died after the lady who made the Will, then the property will go to legal heirs of husband

As the party is a Hindu, the grandchildren are excluded from inheriting if the class 1 legal heirs are alive

The class 1 legal heirs include children

As children of the husband are alive, the grandchildren have no rights and thus their consent is not needed

Just for clarification sake, legal heir means children of Mrs.A and her husband. If yes, then in that case the consent of grandchildren is not required.

1. The law of inheritance operates as per law which can not be override by private agreement.

2. Now on death of her husband the property acquired by her husband from his wife opens for succession among his children in equal undivided 1/5th share.

3. in this consent of grand children is not necessary at all.

The husband of the deceased woman testator acquired the her property which she bequeathed through the Will, thus he becomes absolute owner of the property. 

Now upon his intestate death, his own legal heirs i.e., his children shall become his successors in interest.

It shall devolve on them equally and not on their next generation children. 

This is not ancestral property, hence the legal heirs of the decesed father alone are entitled to succeed/inherit this property.

1. ALL the residual Legal Heirs of Woman & her Husband are entitled to EQUAL share of the deceased's property and they must execute a registered "Family Settlement Deed", with mutual consent and signatures, sharing the property ratios amongst them.

2. IF Family Settlement Deed is not possible, then the legal heirs have to get a Letter of Administration /Probate of the WILL, by following due procedure of law.

1. After the demise of husband the property devolved on Class 1 heirs of husband i.e his children. They have succeeded equally through intestate succession. The heirs should now apply for mutation of inheritance.

2. Grandchildren have no rights in the property, consequently their consent is not at all required.

If there is a clause in the Will that after the death of her husband the property shall vest in the legal heirs, the legal heirs shall then be jointly entitled to the estate by virtue of that Will.
