                  ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING ON APPEAL

          On July 3, 1987 the above-named petitioner-owner filed a  Petition
          for Administrative Review against an order issued on June 23, 1987 
          by the District Rent Administrator, 10 Columbus Circle, New  York,
          New York concerning housing accommodations known as Apartment  3-C
          at 1150 Grand Concourse, Bronx, New York wherein the District Rent 
          Administrator established a default rent and found  an  overcharge
          of $5,966.32 as of May 29, 1987.

          In this petition, the owner claims that the subject  premises  was
          bought on February 18, 1986 by Five Boys Corporation,  with  Ralph
          Langsam Associates, Inc. hired as managing agent; that these  have
          never been served and are not even named on the order; and that an 
          opportunity to respond to the complaint should be given.

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that the proceeding  should  be
          remanded to the Rent Administrator.

          Although Ralph Langsam Associates, Inc. was listed  as  the  owner
          and/or manager on both the 1986 and  1987  registrations,  it  was
          never served in the proceeding before the Administrator  nor  even
          named in the June  23,  1987  order.   This  proceeding  is  being
          remanded to give the current owner an  opportunity  to  prove  the
          lawfulness of the rents charged.  Pursuant to the case of Lavanant 
          v. DHCR, 148 A.D.2d 185, 544 N.Y.S.2d 331  (App.  Div.  1st  Dept.
          1989), this proceeding should continue  to  be  processed  as  one
          initiated before April 1, 1984.







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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted to 
          the extent of remanding  this  proceeding  to  the  District  Rent
          Administrator for further processing in accordance with this order 
          and opinion.  The automatic stay of so much of the  District  Rent
          Administrator's Order as directed a  refund  is  hereby  continued






          DOCKET NO.: BG-610117-RO
          until  a  new  order  is  issued   upon   remand.   However,   the
          Administrator's determination as to the rent  is  not  stayed  and
          shall remain in effect, except for  any  adjustments  pursuant  to
          lease renewals, until the Administrator issues a  new  Order  upon
          remand.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                             ELLIOT SANDER
