I am afraid that unless the property was actually left to your husband in the Will then I am afraid his brother and sister do indeed still have a claim on the property of a third each.
The fact that he has lived there does not give him any extra rights - and doing the maintenance simply covers the "occupation rent" that he should have paid them.
Please ask if you need further details
