          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO. AI810013RO

            JOHN P. FARRAUTO,                 :   
                                                  DISTRICT RENT              
                                  PETITIONER  :   DOCKET NO. 058470    
                                                  TENANT: CHARLOTTE BERMAN

          The above-named petitioner-landlord timely re-filed a petition for 
          administrative review against an order issued on July 31, 1986, by 
          the Rent Administrator, 10 Columbus Circle, New York, New York 
          concerning housing accommodations known as apartment 7, located at 
          8 Washington Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. In said order, 
          the Administrator terminated the proceeding below.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issues raised by the Petition.

          The proceeding below was brought on by the tenant's Objection To 
          Rent/Services Registration. In said Objection, the tenant indicated 
          that she had not received a copy of an apartment registration 

          In the appealed order, based on the tenant's failure to respond to 
          a notice inquiring as to whether or not the registration had been 
          received subsequent to the filing of the Objection, the 
          Administrator determined that the registration statement had been 

          In the Petition the landlord asserts, in substance, that he has 
          claimed, in another proceeding, that the subject building is exempt 
          from regulation under ETPA by virtue of a substantial 
          rehabilitation; that the merits of the landlord's claim have not 
          been determined by the Division; and that it would be inconsistent 
          with said position for the landlord to register the subject 
          building. The Landlord therefore asks that the appealed order be 
          held in abeyance pending a resolution of the landlord's claim of 

          Adm. Rev. Docket No.: AI810013RO

          The tenant filed an answer opposing the Petition.

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that the proceeding brought on  
          by the filing of this Petition should be terminated as moot.

          The Commissioner finds that the subject apartment and building have 
          been registered.

          Therefore, the Commissioner finds that the proceeding brought on by 
          the filing of the instant Petition and assigned Docket Number 
          AI810013RO should be terminated.

          THEREFORE, pursuant to all of the applicable statutes and 
          regulations, it is

          ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, 

                                               JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                               Deputy Commissioner
