Is it in my best interest to move into a duplex that we will share with my husband's sister. She is
providing the downpayment, but going forward the mortgage will be evenly split and all utilities are the responsibility of each party. All outside, yard and garden work will be done by me. Are we just "tenants"?

It depends on whether you and/or your husband are on the deed (title) to the duplex with your sister-in-law.

You need to be the one who can answer the questions based on the contracts and agreements. If you have to ask here, without even telling us the owner, it probably is a bad idea.
It depends completely on the information you chose to omit, so your question cannot be answered.
Who's on the deed? What does your paperwork say?
