             ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING TO ADMINISTRATOR AND
                           REVOKING ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER


          On January 6, 1987 the  above  named  petitioner-tenant  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of  the  Rent
          Administrator issued  December  5,  1986.   The  order  concerned
          housing accommodations known as Apartment 20 located at 207  West
          110th Street, New York, New York.  The Administrator  affirmed  a
          prior order finding that  petitioner  was  not  subject  to  Rent
          Control.  The order states that the tenant failed to submit  suf-
          ficient evidence regarding her date of occupancy of  the  subject
          accommodation.

          This appeal has been considered in conformity with the applicable 
          provisions of law but, in the opinion of  the  Commissioner,  the
          record is not adequate to form the basis for a prop r  determina-
          tion of the issues  in  this  proceeding.   The  proceeding  must
          therefore be remanded  to  the  Rent  Administrator  for  further
          consideration.

          The Commissioner notes that a check  of  DHCR  records  indicates
          that, on September 29, 1983 New York  City  Office  of  Rent  and
          Housing Maintenance  issued  an  order  (Docket  No.  2AD  32930)
          wherein the subject apartme t  was  ordered  recontrolled  retro-
          active to February 18, 1982.   There  was  also  a  determination
          issued on May 8, 1990 (BA  520031-U)  finding  that  the  Maximum
          Legal Rent for the subject apartment is $205.00 effective October 
          15, 1984 to the present.  Also the most recent registration 

          records on file with the Division reveal that  the  apartment  is
          not registered as stabilized and that  the  building  has  twenty
          four (24) rent  controlled  apartments  and  six  (6)  stabilized
          units.

          Since the available evidence in the record supports a  determina-
          tion that the subject apartment is rent controlled and  since  it
          cannot be determined how the  Administrator  concluded  that  the
          tenant is not subject to Rent Control, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the Administrator's order appealed herein should  be







          BA 520027-RT
          revoked and the tenant should be  afforded  rent  control  status
          pending the issuance of another order by the  Administrator  pur-
          suant to this remand.


          THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is,

          ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, 
          remanded to the Rent  Administrator  for  further  processing  in
          accordance with this order and opinion and it is further

          ORDERED, that the Rent Administrator's order  be,  and  the  same
          hereby is, revoked.


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
