                           PETITIONER    :

           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


     On November 3, 1986, the above-named owner timely refiled a  petition  for
     administrative review of an  order  issued  on  September  2,  1986  by  a
     District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known  as
     137-06 Jewel Avenue, Flushing, New York, Apartment 26A.

     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 for review.

     On March  27,  1984,  the  tenant,  Allan  Leblang,  filed  an  overcharge
     complaint with the New York  City  Conciliation  and  Appeals  Board,  the
     agency then responsible for the administration of  rent  stabilization  in
     New York City.

     On  April  1,  1984  responsibility  for  the   administration   of   rent
     stabilization in New York City was  transferred  to  the  New  York  State
     Division of Housing and Community Renewal.  

     In response to the rent agency's demand, the owner  submitted  a  complete
     rental history to the Base Rent Date.

     On September 2, 1986 the District  Rent  Administrator  issued  the  order
     under review herein, finding that a minor overcharge had occurred (eighty 
     five cents per month) beginning with the lease for the period from June 1, 
     1975 to May 31, 1978.

     In  its  petition  for  administrative  review,  the  owner  asserts,   in
     substance, that under Guideline Order No. 6 it was entitled to  charge  an
     increase of twelve and one-half percent for  a  three-year  renewal  lease
     rather than  one  of  twelve  percent,  as  found  by  the  District  Rent
     Administrator.

     After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion  that  the
     petition for review should be denied.










          DOCKET NUMBER: AK 110137-RO
     A review of the record shows that the tenant's rent for the period from 
     June 1, 1972 to May 31, 1975 was $168.94 per month.  Pursuant to Guideline 
     Order No.6, the owner was  permitted  to  impose  an  increase  of  twelve
     percent for the three-year renewal period chosen by the  tenant,  bringing
     the lawful rent to $189.21 per month.  Accordingly, the Commissioner finds 
     that the District Rent Administrator's order finding  a  small  overcharge
     was correct.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabilization Law 
     and Code and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974,  it is

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied,  and  that
     the District Rent Administrator's  order  be,  and  the  same  hereby  is,
     affirmed.

     ISSUED:







                                                                   
                                             ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
