Ask Curbed: The Quiet Joy of Lease Loopholes

Apropos of landlords complaining that it's a real pain in the ass to raise rents so quickly these days, comes this compelling Ask Curbed query:

My management company sent my lease renewal for my rent stabilized apartment, with rent increases by 4.25% for a 1 year and 7.25% for a 2 year lease. In the column that has the new montly rent totals, they put a typo into the 2 year lease amount, giving me an almost $600 monthly discount on a 2 year lease. If I sign the lease for a 2 year agreement, are they bound to give me the discounted rent?
Hilarious. Thoughts?
