The status of your mother's property or house is not explained. If the property was bought in your mother's name and the house is registered in her name, that means she has absolute right over the property. Your husband's sister does not have any right or claim over the property. If she is torturing you, you can make a complaint before the police and register a criminal case against her. If you need any further assistance you may contact me.

The facts posted suggests no legal elements other than that the dowry allegedly given to her is not material or decisive in the given context. The only option is for you and your husband to have a separate residence.
