          ------------------------------------X                             
             ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On May 14, 1987, the above-named petitioner-landlord filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order issued on April 
          10, 1987, by the Rent Administrator, Gertz Plaza, Queens, New York, 
          concerning the housing accommodations known as 141 East 56th Street, 
          New York, New York, Apartment No. 4D, wherein the 
          Rent Administrator determined that in connection with the tenant's 
          challenge, rent records indicate that the cumulative fuel 
          adjustment for 1985 was $0.00.

          The Administrative Appeal is being determined pursuant to the 
          provisions of Section 2202.13 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.  

          In this petition, the landlord alleges in substance that the 
          finding that the cumulative fuel cost adjustment for 1985 was 
          $0.00 is incorrect since the landlord is currently challenging 
          that assertion under petition docket number AL 420238 RO.  
          Therefore the landlord is filing the instant petition to preserve 
          its rights to any fuel cost adjustment based upon a favorable 
          determination of the above-referenced petition.

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

          The petition referred to by the landlord, docket  Number AL 
          420238 RO, was denied on February 24, 1988, on the basis that the 
          landlord had filed an application to obtain 1980 and 1981 fuel 
          cost adjustments a year and a half after the Rent Administrator 
          had revoked 1980 and 1981 fuel cost adjustments and the landlord 
          had not filed timely petitions against the revocations of the 1980 
          BE 410422 RO








          and 1981 fuel cost adjustments.

          In the instant case, the landlord was also not entitled to 
          fuel cost adjustments for the years subsequent to 1981 up to and 
          including 1985 since during this time the landlord filed reports 
          of fuel cost decrease because the price of its fuel oil had gone 
          down.  Accordingly, the Rent Administrator properly found a 
          cumulative fuel adjustment of $0.00 for 1985.

          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
