            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 2144 Bronx Park East, various apartments, 
          Bronx, 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, DD620034BO was 
          issued on December 29, 1989.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of 7MD00473BX issued April 14, 1989, that the 
          owner be denied eligibility for a 1986/87 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) 
          increase, due to the owner's failure to serve the order of 
          eligibility upon the affected tenants within 60 days of the order's 
          date of issuance.

               On appeal, the owner claims that it never received the order 
          of eligibility, issued on June 29, 1988, nor a notice from the 
          Administrator mailed to the tenant on January 20, 1989 informing 
          the owner that the D.H.C.R. had never received an affidavit of 
          service from the owner.  The owner states, as it did at Challenge 

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EB630078RO

          below, that during the spring of 1988 it moved from one apartment 
          in the subject building to another apartment in the same building.  
          The owner thus alleges that the Administrator mistakenly mailed the
          relevant documents to the old apartment.     

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

               An examination of the file does not disclose any evidence in 
          any form that the relevant documents were not mailed correctly to 
          the owner.

               The Commissioner notes that on the various correspondence that 
          reached the owner (both before and after the owner's move), the 
          owner's apartment was not named.  

               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
                                              Deputy Commissioner
