         APPEAL OF                           :   DOCKET NO. BD 810006-RT
                        CHERYL BUSH,         :   DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                PETITIONER   :   DOCKET NO. YAK-8-1-0001-RV

               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                             
         On April 20, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a Petition for 
         Administrative Review against an order issued on March 23, 1987 by   the 
         Rent Administrator, 99 Church Street, White Plains, New York concerning 
         housing accommodations known as 20 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Apartment 5-A, 
         White Plains, New York, wherein the Administrator denied the application 
         and terminated the tenant's complaint of non-lease renewal.  Said order 
         contains the notation "Landlord has sent lease to tenant.  Lease effective 
         February 1, 1986 to January 31, 1988 at a rental of $297.18."

         In this petition for administrative review the tenant acknowledges signing 
         a renewal lease at a rental of $297.18 per month but reiterates, among 
         other things, her contention that she did not receive from the Landlord a 
         fully executed copy of the lease renewal bearing the landlord's signature.
          
         After a careful consideration of the entire record, the Commissioner is of 
         the opinion that this petition should be denied.

         The applicable provision of the tenant Protection Regulations provide, in 
         pertinent part, that the landlord must offer a tenant a renewal lease, on 
         a form promulgated by the Division, not more than 120 days nor less than 
         90 days prior to the expiration of the prior lease term.  In this respect 
         the record contains a copy of the lease renewal in question, fully 
         executed dated October 24, 1985, and signed by the tenant herein on 
         December 9, 1985.  Said lease renewal, for a two year term accepted by the 
         tenant, provides for a rental of $297.18 per month, effective February 1, 
         1986.

         The Commissioner is of the opinion that the order of the Rent 
         Administrator, which terminated the proceeding below, is correct and 
         should be affirmed.  For informational purposes a copy of said lease 
         renewal is being enclosed with the tenant's copy of this order and 
         opinion.
