If a rent-controlled apartment becomes vacant the landlord has the right to get market rates for the apartment. The next tenant to move in is referred to as as tenant lessee, and pays market rate unless they contest the new rate.
Also the landlord has the right to fix up the apartment and and raise the rents. There are vacancy increases etc.
Are you not happy with your apartment?
I must admit I don't like the tone of your post as well. You call the landlord greedy, but a landlord owns property as an investment. It is a buisness and he has the right to maximise the income of his property within the givin guidelines.
I believe your motivation could be construde as self serving as well.
As far as the landlord not registering the apartment it is fairly irrelavent after the apartment is empty. Once it is empty the LL can catch up with any of the legal crud, get the increases, and then rent it out.
