Buying 3rd party lenses second hand

I have a Nikon DSLR. I understand that 3rd party manufacturers have to reverse engineer the lens-camera communication and that their lenses may not work on future models of camera but that there is a solution in the 3rd party lens manufacturer "re-chipping" the lens.

My question is, when will the Sigma/Tamron/Tokina etc. do re-chip a lens? What if I upgrade my body and my lens stops working? What if I buy second hand lens and it doesn't work? What if I buy second hand lens then upgrade body and it stops working?
