       ORDER AND OPINION DENYING OWNER'S PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


     On March 13, 1989  the  above-named  petitioner  filed  an  Administrative
     Appeal against an order issued on February 2, 1989 by  the  District  Rent
     Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, New York, concerning  the
     housing accommodations known as 390 Plandome Road, Manhasset, N^Y  11030.

     The Administrative Appeal is being determined pursuant to  the  provisions
     of Section 2522.4  of the Rent Stabilization Code.

     The issue herein is whether the Rent Administrator was correct in  closing
     the subject MCI file due to lack of jurisdiction and improper venue.

     The District Rent Administrator's order, appealed herein, transferred  the
     entire application with all supporting documentation to the Nassau  County
     Office.

     This order was based upon the undisputed fact that  the  subject  building
     being located in Nassau County is not under the jurisdiction of  the  Rent
     Stabilization Code and Regulation pursuant to Section 2522.4.

     On appeal, the petitioner-owner contends that the transfer of the file may 
     have prejudiced him, by delaying processing if his application  which  was
     prospective in nature.

     After a careful  consideration  of  the  entire  evidence  of  record  the
     Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative  appeal  should  be
     denied.

     The owner had actual notice that he was utilizing incorrect forms when  he
     filed his application incorrectly in NYC.

     The subject form states in bold type near top of page, that it applies to, 
     "Computation at percentage of rent increase or rent stabilized  apartments
     in New York City (Pursuant to Sec. 41 of the Rent Stabilization Code."








          DOCKET NO.:  DC 730162-RO

     Further the owner prior to filing the subject PAR, filed a new application 
     for MCI  increase  direct  with  the  Nassau  County  rent  office,  using
     appropriate forms on January  30,  1989.   Said  application  was  granted
     docket # DA 7100260-OM on November 21, 1983.

     Accordingly the owner's claim of delay in processing  his  application  is
     moot.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabilization Law 
     and Code, the Emergency  Tenant  Protection  Act,  the  Tenant  Protection
     Regulations, it is 

     ORDERED, that the rent administrator's order be and  the  same  hereby  is
     affirmed.

     ISSUED:


                                                                               
                                                     JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                 Acting Deputy Commissioner
