then if a judge finds that you were overcharged from the tenant who
is on the lease the landlord usually will be forced to give you a rent stabilized

Where are you getting this from? I have never heard of this before. I know of nothing
that would require a landlord to give a lease to an illegal sublettor a lease. Now if the
LL is not planning on gutting the apartment, he may be inclined to give the sublettor a lease,
especially if it makes it easier to get rid of the primary tenant, but that is the LL's option.

On a straight renewal, the LL is entitled to the 20% vacancy increase.

Finally, going after the prime tenant is probably a good idea. The sublettor would be entitled
to TRIPLE the amount of all overcharges.
