There is no way to remove her lifetime residency or occupancy right: she is granted that by law. And you can't sell the property while she lives, since you can't take away her lifetime occupancy or residency right, which means that anyone buying it would have to let her live there for the rest of her life. (Or more accurately: you could sell it to someone willing to buy it knowing she can live there for the rest of her life, though that will presumably reduce what they pay for it.)
You will have to pay the bills, taxes, etc. to preserve the property if you want to make sure you will get it after she dies, but you can sue her for these amounts, since she should be paying. Or if the house is not worth paying to keep (e.g there is little or no equity in it, and/or the cost to repair and pay the unpaid taxes, etc. will eat up the equity) you can let it be foreclosed upon.
