                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               On March 2, 1987, the above-named tenant filed a petition 
          for administrative review of an order issued on February 11, 1987 
          by a District Rent Administrator concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as Apartment C3, 203 Baltic Street, Brooklyn, 
          New York, wherein the Administrator dismissed the tenant's 
          complaint.

               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.

               The proceeding was initiated by the tenant on June 4, 1986 
          by the filing of an objection to the 1985 Apartment Registration.  
          The tenant stated therein that he had never received the 
          Apartment Registration Form (RR-1).  Also, the tenant stated that 
          the rent shown on the RR-1 was an overcharge and that this 
          complaint was a fair market rent appeal.  Finally, in the area of 
          the form reserved for incorrect or omitted services, the tenant 
          listed a variety of alleged service diminutions instead.

               In its answer to the complaint the owner asserted, in 
          substance that no overcharges occurred and all service defects 
          were attended to promptly.

               During the pendency of this proceeding before the 
          Administrator, voluminous communications from the tenant were 
          received.  All of these communications related to alleged service 
          defects in the subject apartment.















          DOCKET NO.: BB 210687 RT



               In the order here under review, the Administrator dismissed 
          the tenant objection to registration.  The Administrator found 
          that the objection to registration form (TC-1) used by the tenant 
          related only to objections to the April 1, 1984 registration.  
          The Administrator, along with the order dismissing the complaint, 
          included, in the mailing, copies of the correct forms to be 
          utilized by the tenant.

               In his petition for administrative review the tenant again 
          raises only issues involving diminished services.

               After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that these proceedings should be terminated.

               Agency records indicate that on two other occasions the 
          tenant filed service complaints which have been independently 
          processed (Docket No. AF 210179 S and Docket No. AL 210706 S).  
          In addition, a rent overcharge complaint was filed by the tenant 
          (Docket No. EK 210017 R) and is being processed.  Finally, agency 
          records indicate that the subject tenant has vacated the 
          premises.

               In view of these circumstances, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the tenant complaints have been or will be fully 
          heard and considered by the agency in separate proceedings.  
          Accordingly, this proceeding should be terminated as moot.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          it is

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

               ISSUED:



                                             
                                                                           
                                                  ELLIOT SANDER
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
