You can purchased the property from husband...... in the sale deed you can also mention  minor children represented by father and natural guardian and you can also a add a clause that "for legal necessity and for the welfare of the children and for money needed for education  expenses of the children" you can purchase the property from the husband.

It needs to be ascertained if the property has been got mutated by this man in his name subsequent to the death of his wife. In addition to this it needs to be seen whether the succession certificate has been obtained and the ownership transfer in municipal and revenue records has taken place or not. In order to ascertain all this it is strongly recommended that you take the assistance of a local lawyer.

You need proper documentation for reflecting the husband as owner of the property and his right to sell. Process the entire documents before you purchase the property.
