            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

               On October 26, 1988 the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review  against  an  order  issued  on
          October 13, 1988 by  the  Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall
          Street, Jamaica, New York, concerning the  housing  accommodations
          known as Apartment No. 10B at 150 West 58th Street, New York,  New
          York. 

               The issue in this case is whether the  Administrator's  order
          was warranted.

               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 tenant.

               The instant proceeding was commenced with  the  filing  of  a
          complaint of overcharge by  the  tenant  on  March  5,  1987.   On
          October 13, 1988, under Docket # ZBC 410116-R,  the  Administrator
          terminated this proceeding, since  all  issues  presented  therein
          were  then  under  consideration  in  an  appeal  of  an   earlier
          overcharge complaint filed by the tenant (ARL 07344-L). 
                      
               In response to this  petition,  the  owner  states  that  the
          tenant's appeal should be denied; that the Administrator  properly
          terminated the tenant's complaint  as  being  duplicative  of  the
          tenant's 1983 overcharge complaint; that as the tenant's complaint 
          of overcharge is being considered  in  the  Administrative  Review
          proceeding, under Docket Number ARL 07344-L there is  no  need  to
          process the tenant's later overcharge complaint; that  the  tenant
          has not been prejudiced in any way by the termination of his  1987
          complaint;  that  the  Division  has   merely   consolidated   the
          proceedings and eliminated a duplicative complaint. 




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






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: CJ 410215 RT

               The tenant's complaint of rent overcharge filed in  1987  was
          duplicative of his earlier overcharge  complaint  filed  in  1983.
          Based thereon,  the  Commissioner  finds  that  the  Administrator
          properly terminated  the  tenant's  overcharge  complaint  in  the
          instant case.

               It is noted that on June 19, 1989, the  Commissioner  granted
          in part the petition under Docket # ARL 07344-L,  determining  and
          resolving all issues of law and fact in this case. 

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law  and
          Code, it is

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

          ISSUED:





                                                                        
                                          ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
