                 ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE
                                        REVIEW 




           The Petition herein was timely filed by the above-named owner  
           against an order issued on January 30, 1990, by the Rent 
           Administrator at Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, New York, concerning housing 
           accommodations known as various apartments at 654 East 227th 
           Street, Bronx, New York, wherein the Administrator suspended the 
           petitioner's entitlement to collect the entire, accumulated fuel 
           cost adjustments during the calendar year of 1987, because the 
           owner had failed to timely file the required 1987 report of the 
           fuel cost decrease for #4 heating oil. 



           The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
           has carefully considered that portion of the evidence relevant to 
           the issues raised in the administrative appeal. 



           The issue in the owner's appeal is whether an owner's waiver of 
           subsequent fuel cost adjustments to which (for the sake of argument 
           it will be assumed) the owner was entitled, provides a grounds for 
           the modification or reversal of a fuel cost suspension order 
           relating to a prior time period.



           In the Petition, the owner argues that the order below should be 
           reversed because after the owner took over the operation of the 
           subject building in 1988, fuel cost adjustments which would have

           increased the rent and to which the owner was entitled, were not 
           taken.


           The Commissioner finds that the petitioner has provided no basis 
           upon which the Administrator's order should be reversed or 
           modified. Therefore the Commissioner finds that this Petition 
           should be denied.


           THEREFORE, pursuant to all of the applicable statutes and 
           regulations, it is


           ORDERED, that the Petition be, and the same hereby is denied.


           ISSUED:




                                                              
                                      JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                      Acting Deputy Commissioner
