Your answer depends upon how your mother in law "left" the home to your husband. Was it by will, beneficiary deed, quit claim or some other deed, etc.? In general, you cannot assume the loan under these circumstances and probate may or may not be required, depending upon the facts above and the value of the house, minus the loan.
