            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE APPEAL


          On February 3, 1987, the  above-named  petitioner-owner  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review against  an  order  issued  on
          January 14, 1987 by the  Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall
          Street, Jamaica, New York concerning  the  housing  accommodation
          known as 1 East 198th  Street,  Apartment  3K,  Bronx,  New  York
          wherein the  Administrator terminated the proceeding.

          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 administrative appeal.

          The tenant commenced this proceeding on June 18, 1986 by filing a 
          complaint of owner failure to renew the lease, alleging that  the
          owner was attempting to overcharge.

          A copy of the complaint was served on the owner on July 7, 1986.

          In response, the owner stated that it was trying  to  correct  an
          inadvertent error that it had made in the previous lease.

          On November 20, 1986, the tenant notified the Division  that  the
          complaint had been resolved in court.

          On  January  14,  1987,  the  Administrator  issued   the   order
          terminating the proceeding.





          In  the  appeal,  the  owner  seeks  to  reverse  the  order  and
          reinstitute the proceeding.  The owner contends that although the 
          parties stipulated to a settlement in court, the matter at  issue
          in  the  complaint  had  not  been  resolved.   The   stipulation
          provision on which the owner relies states that the agreement  is
          without prejudice to the owner's right to apply for an increase.







          BB 610050 RO
          Although afforded the opportunity to do so, the  tenant  did  not
          reply.

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition  should  be
          denied.

          The Commissioner notes that as the initiator  of  the  complaint,
          the tenant  had  the  right  to  withdraw  it.   Nothing  in  the
          agreement prevented the tenant from so doing.   The  Commissioner
          notes that the owner may apply for a rent increase if  the  facts
          so warrant.

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

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



          ISSUED:
