Mere finding a name in the encumbrance certificate will not entitle title to the property to he person whose name appears in the encumbrance certificate. 

What about the title document or original documents

Do you have the registered sale deed document standing in your mother in  law's name?

Is it a self acquired property or inherited property?

If your mother in law is alive how do you think that the said property can be transferred to your husband's name during her life time, being the property standing on her name?

Is your mother in  law willing to execute a gift deed on his name?

Whether your husband was facing any problem while getting the gift deed executed in his favor?

What is the civil case that was proposed by somebody?

Did you consult any lawyer in the local with all the details and relevant papers, if so what was his opinion?
