I don't know of any rules that prohibit subletting at a higher rent in a non-regulated apt. As far as it being an illegal sublet, what makes you sure LL was never notified? LL probably knows you're there. Once you move out and tenant moves back in, any illegality as far as a sublet there might have been will have been cured. As far a how fast you could be evicted, that's not the only scenario: Tenant has every right to move back in today, right now, because you have nothing in writing and her/his name is on the lease. Tenant could also move someone else in there with you or give keys to anyone he/she wants.
