Clarifying use of CUY-O/-A/-OS/-AS

Just to clarify if I fully understand this lesson, would these 2 sentences be correct?: 

1. Roberto, cuyas hijas van al colegio de mi hija, es abogado. 

2. Tus padres, cuya casa actual es tan grande para sus necesidades, quieren una casa menos espaciosa.  

Many thanks for helping me get my head around this. Saludos ~Oscar

Hola Oscar

Yes, both sentences are correct. 

Cuya and cuyas are agreeing in gender and number with the noun right after (casa and hijas), i.e. always matching with the "possession", not the "possessor".
