                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING



              On August 4, 1987, the above-named tenant filed a petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued on July 6, 1987 by a Rent 
          Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known as 
          Apartment 2A, 4861-79 Broadway, New York, New York.

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

              This proceeding was commenced by the subject tenant filing an 
          overcharge complaint, dated October 8, 1986.

              In the order under review herein, the Administrator determined 
          that the tenant's maximum rent effective on January 1, 1984 was 
          $318.92 per month; that the maximum rent effective on January 1, 
          1985 was $342.84 per month; that the maximum rent effective on 
          January 1, 1986 was $368.55 per month, and that the maximum rent 
          effective on January 1, 1987 was $396.20 per month.

              In her petition the subject tenant asserts, among other things, 
          that the maximum rents that were listed in the Administrator's 
          order under review herein were incorrect.

              After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion 
          that this proceeding should be terminated.













          Docket No. BH420127RO

              The Commissioner notes that on February 9, 1988, the 
          Administrator mailed a notice to the parties to this proceeding 
          reopening the Administrator's order under review herein, based upon 
          an irregularity in a vital matter.

              The Administrator issued an order on June 29, 1988, under 
          Docket No. CA420044RP, which modified the Administrator's order 
          under review herein by disallowing an MBR increase for 1984.  The 
          order issued under Docket No. CA420044RP noted that the subject 
          apartment's maximum rent effective on January 1, 1983 was $284.89 
          per month.

              The record reflects that there was no petition for 
          administrative review of the Administrator's order issued under 
          Docket No. CA420044RP.   The Commissioner finds that the 
          aforementioned Docket No. CA420044RP is a final determination of 
          the rent agency.

              As the above-mentioned order disallowed an MBR increase for 
          1984, the Commissioner finds, based on the rent agency's record, 
          that the subject apartment's maximum rent effective January 1, 1984 
          remained at $284.89 per month.

              Based on a subsequent overcharge complaint filed by the subject 
          tenant, the Administrator issued an order on February 16, 1990, 
          under Docket No. BF410019R.  The above-mentioned order noted that 
          the subject apartment's maximum rents were as follows:

                    Effective Date                Maximum Rent

                    January 1, 1985               $306.26 per month

                    January 1, 1986               $329.23 per month

                    January 1, 1987               $353.92 per month

                    April 11, 1989                $380.48 per month

              The record reflects that there was no petition for 
          administrative review of the Administrator's order issued under 
          Docket No. BF410019R.   The Commissioner finds that the 
          aforementioned Docket No. BF410019R is a final determination of the 
          rent agency.

              The Commissioner further finds that the aforementioned docket 
          numbers, CA420044RP and BF410019R, supersedes the Administrator's 
          order under review herein.

              Accordingly, the Commissioner is of the opinion that the 
          instant proceeding should be terminated as moot.

              THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent and Rehabilitation 






          Docket No. BH420127RO

          Law and the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

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

          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Deputy Commissioner
