Did he pass the ownership of house to his wife, or simply allowed her to live in the house? Was any agreement made between spouses whereby and whereunder her rights in the house were to be governed? 

If ownership was transferred by husband to his wife then wife owns the house absolutely now, in which scenario husband cannot recover it from her. However, if ownership was not transferred then husband can legally recover the house by filing a case for eviction against her.
