                                   PETITIONER

            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

             The above-named owner 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 Administrator's order being appealed herein found that the 
          owner of the subject premises had failed to file a timely report of 
          fuel cost decrease in 1985.  The Administrator ordered that the 
          fuel cost adjustment be revoked, and that any fuel cost adjustment 
          increases paid by the tenant during the calendar year 1985 should 
          be refunded to the tenant.

              In her petition the tenant states "incorrect fuel cost raised 
          rent."

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

              The tenant's allegation on appeal of "incorrect fuel cost..." 
          is not further defined.  Since there is almost a four-year gap 
          between the effective date of the Administrator's order and the 
          filing date of the petition, various other factors, such as 
          intervening fuel cost adjustments, may have been considered by the 
          tenant.

              Tenant's allegation "... raised rent" is similarly vague.  If 












          Docket No. CI 210070-RT

          the tenant is alleging another instance of rent increase, the 
          Commissioner notes that this argument is irrelevant to the instant 
          proceeding, and hereby advises the tenant to seek redress in a 
          court of competent jurisdiction or to file a complaint of rent 
          overcharge, if the facts so warrant.
              
              THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent 
          Stabilization Law and Code, 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.

          ISSUED:



                                                                            
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Acting Deputy Commissioner
