Ever since Roberts v Tishman Speyer Props., 13 NY3d 270 (2009), it has been an article of faith that a building’s receipt of J-51 benefits means that all of the apartments therein automatically become rent-stabilized. If those apartments were already rent-stabilized, they become, under the logic of Roberts, stabilized a second time. The second layer of rent stabilization has the effect of barring luxury deregulation, at least until J–51 benefits expire. See, Schiffren v Lawlor, 101 AD3d 456 (1st Dept 2012).

Suppose, however, block and lot numbers change over time. To what extent are purchasers on notice of deeds recorded under a block and lot number different from the one prevalent at the time of purchase?
