ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING
On August 25, 1987, the above-named tenant filed a petition for
administrative review of an order issued on August 7, 1987 by a Rent
Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known as Apartment 1A,
7701 Bay Parkway, Brooklyn, New York.
The Commissioner points out that subsequent to the filing of the above-
mentioned petition, the rent agency mailed two written inquiries, dated
February 16, 1993 and April 12, 1993, to the subject tenant which requested
whether there is still an active issue to be determined with respect to the
The record reflects that the above-mentioned written inquiries were both
returned to the rent agency by the post office in an envelope marked
"Returned To Sender - Attempted - NOT KNOWN."
Based on the record, the Commissioner finds that the subject tenant does not
inform the rent agency of her new address, and that the subject tenant does
not provide the name and address of an attorney or representative.
Accordingly, the Commissioner is of the opinion that any subsequent order
which would be issued by the rent agency and mailed to the subject tenant
would be sent back to the rent agency by the post office as undeliverable.
The Commissioner points out that the subject tenant was subject to the rent
control laws and regulation and that the issues raised in her petition
pertain to her 1987 maximum rent.
The rent agency's records reflect that the subject apartment has been
decontrolled due to a vacancy of the subject apartment.
Based upon the above-mentioned, the Commissioner finds that this proceeding
should be terminated as it appears that the issues raised in the tenant's
petition are moot.
DOCKET NO.: BH210242RT
THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the City Rent and
Rehabilitation Law and the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is
ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, terminated.
