           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On December 29, 1986 the above  named  petitioner  filed  a  Petition  for
     Administrative Review against an order issued on November 26, 1986 by  the
     District Rent Administrator 92-31 Union Hall  Street,  Jamaica,  New  York
     concerning housing accommodations known as Apartment 12-S located  at  866
     United Nations Plaza, New York, New York 10007.  The Administrator ordered 
     the petitioner to offer a renewal lease to the tenant.

     This proceeding concerns an apartment rented to  the  Canadian  Government
     and occupied by a tenant of its choosing.  When the owner failed to  issue
     a renewal lease to said tenant, the tenant filed a complaint on August  1,
     1985.  He alleged that,  pursuant  to  the  Rent  Stabilization  Code  the
     petitioner was obligated to issue a renewal lease in his name.  The owner, 
     through counsel, answered that the tenant was not using the  apartment  as
     his primary residence and was  not  entitled  to  a  renewal  lease.   The
     Administrator found otherwise.

     In its petition the owner claims  that,  prior  to  the  issuance  of  the
     Administrator's order a stipulation of settlement was entered into between 
     the parties.  This settlement was so ordered by the Honorable Judge  Peter
     Tom, on April 19, 1986.  

     DHCR is bound to  follow  a  so-ordered  stipulation.   Pursuant  to  this
     settlement, the  tenant  has  vacated  the  apartment.   Accordingly,  the
     Commissioner revokes the Administrator's directive.

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

     ORDERED, that the petition herein be, and the same hereby is, granted  and
     that the  Administrator's  order  be,  and  the  hereby  is,  modified  in
     accordance with this Order and Opinion.

     ISSUED:
                                                                  
                                     ELLIOT SANDER
                                     Deputy Commissioner
