                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING


               On November 27,  1987,  the  above-named  landlords  filed  a
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on  November
          2, 1987 by the District Rent Administrator concerning the  housing
          accommodation known as Apartment 4,  349  West  84th  Street,  New
          York, New York. 

               This proceeding was originally commenced by the filing  of  a
          "Landlord's Application for Certificate of Eviction," on March  6,
          1985.  The  District  Rent  Administrator,  under  Docket  No.  LC
          000067-OE, issued an order granting the Certificate Of Eviction on 
          June 9, 1986.   

               The tenants filed a petition for administrative review of the 
          above-mentioned  order,  under  Docket   No.   ART-11497-J.    The
          Commissioner  remanded  the  proceeding  to  the   District   Rent
          Administrator to determine whether the landlords had a  compelling
          necessity for the use of the subject apartment. 

               The District Rent Administrator, under Docket No.  L  420061-
          RP (ZLC-000067-OI),  which  is  the  order  under  review  herein,
          revoked the prior order granting the Certificate Of Eviction.    

               In  this  petition  the  landlords  assert  that   the   Rent
          Administrator's revocation of  the  Certificate  of  Eviction  was
          incorrectly decided.

               The Commissioner notes that a "Report of Change  in  Identity
          of Landlord" was filed with the rent  agency  indicating  that  on
          March 20, 1989, a new landlord acquired the subject building.  The 
          Commissioner finds that the issue raised in this proceeding, which 





          is whether the eviction of the subject tenant was warranted due to 
          the prior landlords' asserted need for the subject  apartment,  is






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO. BK 420281 RO
          thereby rendered moot.  Accordingly, the Commissioner  is  of  the
          opinion that this proceeding should be terminated.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent Control  Law  and
          the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

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

          ISSUED:





                                                                        
                                          ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
