          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO. BI210251RO 

                                                  DISTRICT RENT
                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET
                                                  NO. AI220522R 
                     JUAN RODRIGUEZ,


               On September 30, 1987, the above-named landlord filed a 
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on September 
          23, 1987 by a Rent Administrator concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as Apartment 3, 115 Lynch Street, Brooklyn, New 

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

               This proceeding was commenced by the subject tenant filing an 
          overcharge complaint, dated September 11, 1986.

               The subject tenant commenced occupancy in the subject 
          apartment on May 1, 1962.

               In the order under review herein, the Administrator 
          determined, among other things, that the subject apartment is rent 
          controlled and that the subject apartment's maximum rent is $151.15 
          per month effective March 6, 1979.

               In his petition the subject owner asserts that the issue of 
          whether the subject apartment should be decontrolled based upon 
          owner occupancy is before the rent agency in the proceeding under 
          Docket No. 2AD57324.

               After careful consideration, the Commissioner finds that the 
          owner's petition should be denied.

          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO. BI210251RO

               The rent agency's record reflects that on March 6, 1979 the 
          Administrator issued an order under the above-mentioned Docket No. 
          2AD57324.  In the order issued under Docket No. 2AD57324, the 
          Administrator determined that, among other things, the subject 
          apartment is rent controlled, and that the subject apartment's 
          maximum rent is $151.15 per month effective on the date of the 
          subject tenant's initial occupancy. 

               The record reflects that there was no petition for 
          administrative review of the order issued under Docket No. 
          2AD57324.  Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the 
          Administrator's order issued on March 6, 1979 under Docket No. 
          2AD57324 is a final determination of the rent agency.

               Based upon the above-mentioned facts, the Commissioner finds 
          that the owner's petition does not raise any issues which would 
          warrant the revocation of the Administrator's order under review 

               The Commissioner notes that the Administrator issued an order 
          on February 15, 1991 under Docket No. BE210474R, pertaining to the 
          subject apartment, which stated that:

                    The owner has failed to file the proper form
                    to collect any maximum base rent increases.
                    The tenant's rent is $151.15 per month as per
                    Docket No. 2AD57324 issued March 6, 1979.

               The Commissioner further notes, based upon the rent agency's 
          record, that the above-mentioned Docket No. BE210474R is a final 
          determination of the rent agency.

               Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the owner's petition 
          should be denied.

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

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          denied, and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby 
          is, affirmed.


                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
