I am sorry to hear this.

Are you asking how to evict a tenant from the unit?

Are you the owner?

Is there such a thing as a “”life time tenant” when an apartment is converted to a condo?

No. That is not the law.

But the law is that only the owner of the unit can evict the tenant.

They can evict the tenant if the tenant breaches the tenancy agreement. So if the tenant doesn't pay rent for example. They can also evict the tenant if the tenant causes damage to the unit or to the common areas. They can also evict the tenant if the tenant is disturbing other tenants or owners.

The owner can also evict the tenant if the want to unit for themselves or their family.

So it is not for a life time but there have to be grounds for eviction.

That applies to all rental units and it has nothing to do with whether the unit is a condo.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you.
