So here is the rub.
Yes, he has to give you right of first refusal, but that buys you max of 90 days and unless you can afford the condo or actually want to buy it, what is the point.
Second, you aren’t living in an “illegal” basement apartment without a c of o. You are living in a fee simple, condominium which he can rent as he pleases (within the bounds of his condo regs). There is nothing illegal to notify the city about, so I am not sure what that is going to get you.
The best solution for you is to nicely neogiate for a “bonus” to get you to break your lease, 2-3K to make it worth your while to leave. Don’t get greedy and ask for 10K or something, because he will say no and you will be out in ~3 months anyway without any benefit to you.
None of this is ideal, but it is always a reality when you are renting someones private property. Life situations change, people need to move, take other jobs, finacial situations change.
