                     VIOLA SOMMER                 
             d/b/a   ETE COMPANY,                 RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                  DOCKET NO.:
                                   PETITIONER     044417            

                              FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW       

          On September 23, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner filed an 
          Administrative Appeal against an order issued on August 19, 1987, 
          by the Rent Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, 
          New York, concerning the housing accommodation known as 425 East 
          58th Street, New York, New York, Apartment 28-H.

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

          On appeal, the petitioner-owner alleged that the Rent Administra- 
          tor's order of August 19, 1987, was issued in error, because it 
          determined, inter alia, that the owner had defaulted the proceed- 
          ings and that the factual allegations of the tenant's objection to 
          the 1984 apartment registration were deemed admitted; when in fact, 
          the owner had hand delivered a timely answer to the Division of 
          Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) and the document was date 
          stamped "Received".

          The Commissioner notes that the DHCR reopened the proceeding below, 
          on September 25, 1987, based on an irregularity in a vital matter 
          and fully acknowledged that the owner did, in fact, file a timely 
          response as stated by the owner on appeal.

          Thereafter, an amended order was issued by the Rent Administrator 
          on January 27, 1988, but the record shows that the owner appealed 
          the original order issued by the Rent Administrator on August 19, 
          1987 and not the amended order issued on January 27, 1988.  

          BI 410259-RO

          The petition on appeal, therefore, clearly shows that the 
          petitioner has not put a specific justiciable issue before the 
          Commissioner thereby rendering the instant petition moot.

          Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that this petition should be 

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili- 
          zation Law and Code, it is,

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, terminated.

                                                Acting Deputy Commissioner
