If it is in the same residence with only a single address (not the other side of a duplex or another apartment in the same building), you can probably get your own TWC account that would be fed on the same drop. I think that most cable operators will only use a single drop for the same residential address, even with multiple accounts. If the "other modem across the way" is at a different address, then your own new account will probably get its own cable drop.

If you are looking to use your in-law's account with your own modem at the same time that their modem is active, it typically doesn't work that way for a residential account. TWC will not likely allow you to use two modems simultaneously on the same account. You might get away with it for a while (if TWC's automated modem activation process, or a CSR does not deactivate the first modem when the second is activated), but eventually one (or both) modems will probably get banned if TWC detects that both are in use at the same time.

FWIW, this site does have a »Time Warner Cable forum, and your question might be better asked in that forum. Members of this site who have experience with TWC, and possibly even TWC employees monitoring that forum could give you a definitive answer instead of a generic guess.
