Your husband should not have funded to the property that never belonged to him anytime. They might have done in the joint family interest whereas if the things are going against him, he cannot legally claim any share in the property. However, if he has any records for the financial assistance for the development of the house property, he may file a partition suit seeking his share in the property or the amount he funded with interest.
Alternately, he may arrange for an amicable settlement with his mother and brother to avoid litigation, expenses for it and time, energy towards litigation.
Consult an advocate in the local and arrange for talks with his close relatives about this.

The title of the property indicate the owner of the land.If the title in the deed and all other documents related to the property has reflected in the name of Brother then he is the absolute owner of the property. He can create / sell /transfer that property as per his wish.

Do you mean the day to day expenses of house meet by your husband ?
If do so, it never related to the property title.If brother will execute will or other doc. then you husband got share
