I'll make it three out of four (so far) that you need to speak with an attorney who specializes in real estate. If you can't find one let me know and I will give you some names.

Whose name is on the deed --- your sister's?
Mortgage only in your brother-in-law's name?

More questions to ask:
Did your brother-in-law leave a will?
How is your sister's name on title --- as a joint tenant? tenant-in-common?

Best advice: consult an attorney to dig out all the facts of the case and advise your sister what to do,

The question is a bit confusing but if I understand it correctly you are on the deed and not the mortgage and sister is not on the deed but on the mortgage.

That's a good scenario for you since it is now your house but sister must make payments or default on the mortgage. You need to go visit an attorney and decide what it is you want to do.
