        APPEAL OF                              DOCKET NO.: EI 210324-RO 
             LUCY BERMAN,                      DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                               DOCKET NO.: DC 230150-OM 
                              PETITIONER    : 
        ------------------------------------X  Premises: 9281 Shore Road,
                                                         Brooklyn, NY

        On September 10, 1990, the above-named petitioner filed  a  Petition
        for Administrative Review against an order issued on August 10, 1990 
        by the Rent Administrator of the District  Rent  Office  located  at
        Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, NY, concerning the above  captioned  premises.
        The petition was denominated by the applicant as an owner's Petition 
        for Administrative Review.

        On July 3, 1991, the Commissioner issued an order rejecting the  PAR
        for various procedural reasons.

        The petition was rejected without prejudice  to  the  right  of  the
        owner to refile property within thirty-five days from  the  date  of
        this notice.

        By a letter dated July 8, 1991 the  owner's  representative  advised
        that it was not aware of any Petition for Administrative Review  and
        requested further             .

        Examination of the applicant's PAR reveals that although denominated 
        as an owner's PAR,  the  petition  was  signed  by  the  tenant  and
        requested relief accruing to the tenant's benefit.  The record  also
        revealed that the rejection order was not served on the tenant.

        Based on irregularities  in  vital  matters  in  that  the  PAR  was
        improperly denominated by the  applicant  as  an  owner's  PAR,  and
        processed as an owner's PAR, and in that  the  Commissioner's  order
        was not served on the tenant, the Commissioner  rejection  order  is
        reissued to afford all parties their due process  rights  to  notice
        and to permit the  above  named  petitioner  to  refile  a  properly
        completed PAR in a timely manner as more fully set forth below.

        The petition is rejected  pursuant  to  Operational  Bulletin  84-1,
        since it fails to comply with  the  requirements  of  the  aforesaid
        Operational Bulletin as indicated by the item(s) checked below.

             ( )  The petitioner fails to set forth the name  and  post-
             office address of an aggrieved person filing the
                  petition, and whether it is the  tenant  or  owner  of
             the  accommodations  involved  or   a   representative   of
             the tenant or owner or other aggrieved person.

        Adm. Review Docket No: EI 210324-RO

             (X)  The petitioner has not submitted a  complete  copy  of
             the District Rent Office order being appealed.

             ( )  The petition fails to set forth the location  y  post-
             office  address  of  all  housing  accommodations  involved
             in the petition.

             (X)  The petition fails to set  forth  the  name(s)  and/or
             location  by  post-office  address  of   tenant(s)   and/or
             owner(s) affected by the petition.

             ( )  The petitioner filing the petition has failed to  sign
             and/or verify or affirm the petition.

             ( )  The petitioner fails to set forth objections to the 
                  order being appealed.

             (X)  The petition has not been filed  in  an  original  and
             one  copy  at  the  Division  of  Housing   and   Community
             Renewal,  Office  of  Rent  Administration,  Gertz   Plaza,
             92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, NY 11433.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Laws of 
        1983, as amended by Chapter 102, Laws of  1984,  as  implemented  by
        Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

        ORDERED, that the petition is hereby rejected, without prejudice  to
        the right of the applicant to refile  properly  within  thirty  five
        (35) days from the date of this notice.

        NOTE:  Should the applicant refile the  petition,  the  papers  must
        include a copy of the Rent Administrator's Order and must  reference
        the Docket Number of this Order and Opinion rejecting  the  Petition
        for Administrative Review.

        PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that should you fail to  fully  comply  with  all
        requirements  for  a  proper  administrative  appeal,   within   the
        specified time limit,  there  will  be  no  further  opportunity  to
        refile.  A late refiling or one that does not  meet  all  procedural
        requirements may be dismissed with prejudice.

        The petitioner is hereby cautioned that it shall be insufficient  to
        attempt to comply with this order by  resubmitting  a  copy  of  the
        petition which has been rejected.  A new filing is required and 

        failure to so refile in compliance with all procedural  requirements
        within 35 days may result in a dismissal of the proceeding.

        Should Petitioner be unable  to  correct  the  procedural  defect(s)
        indicated herein above  within  the  35  day  refiling  period,  the
        Petitioner must nevertheless refile within the stated 35 days, 
        setting forth the reason why the defect could not be cured as of the 
        time of refiling and requesting an extension of time within which to 
        perfect the appeal.
