          ------------------------------------X

                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 83-09 Talbot Street, Kew Gardens, N.Y.

               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 Administrator's order being appealed, CI120012BT was 
          issued on January 12, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of BL127353BR, issued July 21, 1988, that the 
          owner be granted eligibility for a 1988/89 Maximum Base Rent (MBR).

               On appeal the tenant contends that the amount of the MBR 
          increase is incorrect.

               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 
          maximum 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.
















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EB120393RT

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

               An examination of the record reveals that the sole issue 
          raised by the tenant on appeal, and elaborated upon by the tenant 
          is subsequent submission to the Administrator, is the allegedly 
          incorrect calculation of the Maximum Base Rent.

               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 finding 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.

          ISSUED:



                                                                             
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
