           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     The above-named tenants 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 issued the order being appealed herein in which the 
     Administrator found that the "owner submitted evidence indicating the owner 
     has substantially complied with the filing requirements for the 1986 fuel 
     cost adjustments."

     On appeal, the tenants argue that the Administrator's order is incorrect 
     because it is addressed to a former tenant, not to the current tenants.  
     The tenants also allege that "other information submitted by landlord may 
     also be incorrect."

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

     An examination of the record reveals that one of the tenants (Regina 
     Hennen), was married to the former tenant named on the Administrator's 
     order (Kevin Hayden), and, subsequent to Kevin Hayden's death married Fred 
     Hennen.  As such, she retains Kevin Hayden's rights and obligations as a 
     rent-controlled tenant.

     The Commissioner is thus of the opinion that the use of Kevin Hayden's name 
     on the order, was merely a clerical error by the Administrator, and is thus 
     not material to the Administrator's finding below.

     The Commissioner is additionally of the opinion that the tenants' 
     contention on appeal that "other information submitted by the landlord may 
     also be incorrect" is speculative.  Moreover, the tenant has failed to 
     document this allegation.








          DOCKET NO.:  DK 120370-RT


     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
                                                 Acting Deputy Commissioner
