since your father in law is absolute owner of property he can dispose it as he pleases . although earlier he had made a will in favour of his daughter he can always revoke the will and bequeath property to his nephew .
you will have to go by wil

Being the absolute owner of his property he is at liberty to decide how his property will be distributed after his life time. He can revoke his earlier will and make a fresh will in favour of his nephew.
