            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On July 1, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on June 15, 
          1987, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 192-14 39th Avenue, Flushing, New York, 
          Apartment 1-FL, wherein the Administrator determined that the owner 
          must maintain and post the building registration form # RR-3 at all 
          times in an area accessible to all tenants.

               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.  

               The issue herein is whether the Rent Administrator properly 
          determined the tenant's objection to the registration, which 
          objection was filed on September 28, 1984.

               On appeal, the petitioner-tenant claimed that the registration 
          for the building complex has to be posted in the lobby or directly 
          outside the managing agent's office and that the owner had not 
          complied with this requirement.  Additionally, the petitioner- 
          tenant stated that the owner did not furnish a multiple dwelling 
          registration (MDR) number for the subject building.















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BG - 110244 - RT

               After a careful consideration of the entire evidence of record 
          the Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be denied.

               The sole issue raised in the tenant's objection to the 
          registration is whether the owner had properly posted the building 
          registration form.

               With regard to the tenant's contentions about the posting of 
          the building services registration, the Commissioner notes that 
          this is not a service that would be included in the registration 
          and is, therefore, not an appropriate matter for adjudication in an 
          objection to registration proceeding.  The owner, however, is 
          reminded that Section 2528.2 of the Code requires such posting, and 
          the owner is cautioned to comply with this requirement, or risk 
          possible penalties.

               Be this as it may, the owner's answer of April 20, 1987 
          asserted that a copy of the RR-3 was posted and a copy of the 
          registration form was provided as evidence thereof.  In fact, the 
          owner alleged that the RR-3 form has been prominently posted on the 
          superintendent's office in every year since 1984. 

               The Commissioner notes that an MDR number is not necessary for 
          the subject premises because it is a garden-type complex and is, 
          therefore, not a multiple dwelling.

               Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the Rent 
          Administrator properly issued the order of June 15, 1987. 

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

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

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
