                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET
                                                  NO.: 7MBC171M (7M10640M) 
                                   PETITIONER     PREMISES:  30 West 90th    
                                                  Street, Apt. 5C, New York,
          ------------------------------------X   N.Y.


               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations described above.

               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.  

               The issue in this proceeding is whether the Administrator's 
          order was correct.

               In the order under appeal herein, the Administrator found that 
          the owner of the subject apartment was eligible to raise the 
          Maximum Base Rent (MBR) of the subject apartment for the period 

               On appeal, the tenant states that Administrator's order 
          LC001035RU (issued October 11, 1985) mistakenly found that the 
          subject apartment (identical to the subject apartment in the 
          instant proceeding) had 3 rooms and accordingly upwardly adjusted 
          the tenant's MBR and Maximum Collectible Rent (MCR) TO $287.61 per 
          month and $235.93 per month, respectively, effective January 1, 
          1985.  Administrator's order LC000092RU and LC000092RP (issued on 
          November 21, 1985 and April 14, 1986, respectively) revoked this 
          order and found that the tenant's apartment consisted of 2 rooms, 
          and established the MBR and MCR at $230.79 per month, effective 
          January 1, 1985.

          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BE410095RT

               The tenant maintains on appeal that, in the order under review 
          herein the Administrator "seems to" disregard the RP and latter RU 
          orders finding 2 rooms and a lower rent for the subject apartment 
          and instead the Administrator is apparently following LC001035RU. 
          The tenant further contends that the "wrong" rental amount was on 
          the form notifying the tenant that the owner had received 
          eligibility to raise rents under Administrator's order 6M6368 
          (apparently concerning the 1984/85 MBR).  The tenant alleges that 
          she received no such notice pursuant to the issuance of LC000092RU 
          or LC000092RP.  The tenant thus concludes that the wrong room count 
          and wrong rental amounts were "most likely...uncorrected."

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should 
          be denied.

               The tenant did not allege an error of law or fact in the 
          Administrator's order.  Rather, the tenant argues with the accuracy 
          of a previous notice of eligibility (the tenant made a similar 
          argument concerning the instant order below), and, based on the 
          alleged errors of the owner concludes that the D.H.C.R.'s records 
          are mistaken.  The tenant's "argument" on appeal thus can be 
          dismissed as mere speculation by the tenant.

               The Commissioner further notes that in the order under appeal 
          herein, the Administrator advised the tenant to file an update 
          complaint form.  An examination of the tenant's submission reveals 
          an update complaint form is currently pending under docket number 

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

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

                                             Deputy Commissioner
