            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On July 7, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner  filed  an
          Administrative Appeal against an order issued on June 11, 1987 by 
          the  District  Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall   Street,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          929 71st Street, Brooklyn, New York 11228, Apartment D-1.

               The issue herein is whether the District Rent  Administrator
          properly restored the rent of the  subject  apartment,  effective
          July 1, 1987.

               The District Rent Administrator's  order,  appealed  herein,
          restored the rent of the subject apartment by $14.00  per  month,
          effective July 1,1987.  The order  was  based  upon  a  statement
          filed by the tenant's representative, on April  16,  1987,  which
          revealed that all complaints were resolved between the parties.  

               On appeal, the petitioner-owner alleged that  the  effective
          date of the rent restoration order should be made retroactive  to
          the date it was received by the DHCR,  rather  than  to  July  1,
          1987; the actual effective date.

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


               The record shows that the  owner  filed  an  application  to
          restore the rent of the subject apartment, which  had  previously
          been reduced by the District Rent Administrator on  November  10,
          1982 and October 17, 1983.

               The owner's  application  for  a  restoration  of  rent  was
          granted in whole by the District Rent Administrator on  June  11,
          1987, effective July 1, 1987.






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO. BG 220363 RO

               The file is devoid of any  evidence  which  would  establish
          that the effective date  of  the  District  Rent  Administrator's
          order was in error and there is no showing of any undue delay  in
          processing the owner's application.

               9 NYCRR 2202.2 provides, in pertinent part,  that  no  order
          increasing or decreasing a maximum rent shall be effective  prior
          to the date on which the order is issued.

               The Commissioner  finds  that  the  effective  date  of  the
          District  Rent   Administrator's   order   of   restoration   was
          established in accordance with standard agency procedures to  the
          first day of the month following the issue date of  the  District
          Rent Administrator's order.

               Accordingly,  the  Commissioner  further  finds   that   the
          District Rent Administrator properly restored  the  rent  of  the
          subject apartment, effective July 1, 1987.

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

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

          ISSUED:






                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
