    Agree on THAT-clause

    Agree /i/ipr/it/tf/tw with sb about/on sth
    with sb about sb
    with sb
    ex they agree with him on buying this house.
    they agree (with him) (about/on) what he did to her.
    they agree (with him) (about/on) where to business.
    reading some grammar books, I see some authors use preposition before Wh-clause like these:
    ex
    they agree with him about/on where to business.

    Agree ( ipr) wih somebody about/on something, something here I replace by THAT -clause.
    ex:
    They agree with him about/on that his buying this house is right.

    is my sentence like that right or wrong?
