            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


              The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 446 West 49th Street, Apt. 3B, New York, 
          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.

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

              The order being appealed herein affirmed the underlying Interim 
          Order of Eligibility, found that the owner had met the prescribed 
          violation certification requirements, and, directed the tenant to 
          file form A-1 to resolve questions about the Maximum Base Rent 
          (MBR).

              On appeal, the tenant argues that the owner incorrectly 
          combined the fuel cost with the rent, and presented her with one 
          total due on her rent bill.  The tenant also alleges an overcharge.

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

              To be considered by the Commissioner a Petition for 
          Administrative Review must allege an error in law or fact in the 
          Administrator's order.  The tenant does not make such an allegation 
          in the instant proceeding.  The tenant's appeal concerns the actual 
          amount of the MBR for her apartment and the amount of rent actually 
          charged her by the landlord.  The order being appealed merely 












          Docket No. CG410012RT

          established that the owner was elligible for MBR increases for the 
          subject building as a whole.  Individual rents were not established 
          or affirmed by the Administrator's order.

              This order is without prejudice to the tenant's right to file 
          an overcharge complaint if the facts so warrant. 

              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.

          ISSUED:



                                                                            
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Deputy Commissioner
