            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          On October  7,  1986,  the  above-named  petitioner-owner  timely
          refiled a Petition for Administrative  Review  against  an  order
          issued on June  10,  1986,  by  the  Rent  Administrator  Jamaica
          New  York,  concerning  the  housing  accommodations   known   as
          276 West 71st Street, New York, Apartment  No.  3B,  wherein  the
          Rent Administrator determined that the owner had overcharged  the
          tenant.

          The issue herein is whether the Rent  Administrator's  order  was
          warranted.

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

          This proceeding was originally commenced in October 1985  by  the
          filing of a rent overcharge complaint by the tenant.  
               
          In Order Number ZL-003460-SH, the Rent  Administrator  determined
          that the tenant had been overcharged in the  amount  of  $517.72,
          and directed the owner to refund such overcharge to the tenant.

          In this petition, the owner contends in substance that  there  is
          no rent overcharge in that the tenant withdrew his  complaint  on
          February 10, 1986.

          The tenant did not submit an answer to the owner's petition.

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition  should  be
          granted.



          An examination of the records in this  case  discloses  that  the
          owner is correct in its contention that the tenant  withdrew  his
          complaint on February  10,  1986  prior  to  the  Administrator's
          Order.






          AJ 410580 RO

          THEREFORE,  in  accordance  with  the  provisions  of  the   Rent
          Stabilization Law and Code, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition for  administrative  review  be,  and
          the  same  hereby  is,  granted,  that  the  order  of  the  Rent
          Administrator be, and the same hereby  is,  revoked,  and  it  is
          found that the tenant withdrew his complaint.



          ISSUED





                                                                      
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
