          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.: ED220012RT  

                                                  DISTRICT RENT             
          Evelyn Gustafson                        ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET
                                                  NO.: CG220027BR


              The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 213 Court Street, Brooklyn, 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 before the Commissioner is whether the 
          Administrator's order was correct.

              The Administrators order being appealed, CG220027BR was issued 
          on February 16, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator granted the 
          owner eligibility to raise 1988/89 MBR's.

              On appeal the tenant contends that the amount of the MBR 
          increase was incorrect and why did it take so long to receive the 
          order of eligibility.

              The Commissioner is of the opinion that this proceeding should 
          be terminated.

              In granting an owner eligibility to raise MBRs at a given 
          premises, the Administrator makes various findings.  Among these 
          findings are, that the owner has certified to the repair of a 
          minimum number of violations, that the operations and maintenance 
          expenses claimed by the owner are not excessive, and that the owner 
          is maintaining essential services at the subject premises.

              One finding the Administrator does not make in granting 
          eligibility is the dollar amount of the rent to be charged the 

          Docket No. ED220012RT

          subject tenant.

              An examination of the record reveals that the sole issue raised 
          by the tenant on appeal, and elaborated upon by the tenant in 
          subsequent submissions to the Administrator, is the allegedly 
          excessive amount of the MBR Increase.

              The Commissioner is therefore of the opinion that this 
          proceeding should be terminated, inasmuch as the tenant has failed 
          to substantively appeal any of the Administrator's findings made in 
          its granting the owner eligibility.

              The tenant is advised to file a Request for  a Rent 
          Registration update, in order to determine the amount of the 
          monthly rent for the subject apartment.

              THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

              ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, 
          terminated, and that the order of the Rent Administrator be, and 
          the same hereby is, affirmed.

                                             Deputy Commissioner
