                                               DOCKET NO.: K 3108045-R
           
                                   PETITIONER               
          -----------------------------------X

            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          On December 23, 1987, the above-named owner filed a petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on December 4, 1987 by a 
          District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations 
          known as Apartment 5N, 901 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. 

          The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record  and
          has carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant  to
          the issues raised by the petition for review.

          On December 4, 1987 the District Rent  Administrator  issued  the
          order appealed herein establishing the lawful stabilization  rent
          and determining that the owner had collected an overcharge in the 
          amount of $94.55, including interest.

          In his petition, the owner contends that the Rent Administrator's 
          calculations are incorrect since they do not account for the fact 
          that beginning January 1, 1986 a two-year lease was in effect.

          The tenant did not submit an answer to the owner's petition.

          After careful consideration the Commissioner is  of  the  opinion
          that this petition should be granted.

          A review of the record reveals that the  tenant  entered  into  a
          two-year lease beginning January 1, 1986 at  a  monthly  rent  of
          $319.50 which is in accordance with the applicable Rent Guideline 
          Board Order No. 17.

          Accordingly,  the  Commissioner   has   recomputed   the   lawful
          stabilization rent for the lease commencing  under  Guideline  17
          and finds that the subject tenant was not overcharged.

          If the owner has already complied with the  Rent  Administrator's
          order and there are arrears due to the owner as a result  of  the
          instant determination, the tenant shall be permitted to  pay  off
          the arrears in  six  monthly  installments.   Should  the  tenant
          vacate after the issuance of this order or have already  vacated,
          said arrears shall be payable immediately.







          BL 210241 RO
          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, it is

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

          ISSUED:

           
                                                       JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                       Deputy Commissioner
