            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On May 12, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant refiled  a
          Petition for Administrative Review  against  an  order  issued  on
          February  11,  1987,  by  the  Rent  Administrator,  Gertz  Plaza,
          Queens, New York, concerning the housing accommodations  known  as
          200 East 16th Street, New  York,  New  York,  Apartment  No.  17B,
          wherein the Rent Administrator increased the  maximum  collectible
          rents of the subject apartments by $13.96 per month due to a labor 
          cost adjustment. 

               The Administrative Appeal is being determined pursuant to the 
          provisions of Section 2202.11 of the Rent and Eviction Regulations 
          for New York City.

               The issue herein is whether the  Rent  Administrator's  order
          was warranted.

               The Commissioner has reviewed all  of  the  evidence  in  the
          record and has carefully considered that  portion  of  the  record
          relevant to the issue raised by the administrative appeal.  

               On appeal the petitioner-tenant alleges in substance that the 
          tenants were not served with a copy of the landlord's  application
          for the labor cost adjustment.

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

               Section 2202.11 of the Rent and Eviction Regulations for  New
          York City provides in pertinent part that  the  administrator  may
          make an appropriate adjustment of a maximum rent  where  he  finds
          that the actual labor expenses incurred or to be  incurred  exceed
          the provision for payroll expenses  in  the  currently  applicable
          operating and maintenance expense allowance.

               In the instant  case,  the  landlord  submitted  a  completed
          application for the labor cost adjustment and a statement  from  a
          certified public accountant.  An examination of  such  application
          and statement discloses that the landlord was entitled to  the  BE
          410061 RT









          labor cost adjustment granted by the Rent Administrator.

               With regard to the tenant's contention that the tenants  were
          not served with a copy of the landlord's application,  the  record
          discloses that on June 20, 1985, all tenants were  served  by  the
          Division with a copy of the landlord's application and afforded an 
          opportunity to respond to such application thereby satisfying  due
          process requirements.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent  and
          Eviction Regulations for New York City, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and 
          the same hereby is, denied,  and,  that  the  order  of  the  Rent
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed. 

          ISSUED



                                                                        
                                          ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
