           ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING BOTH THE OWNER'S AND TENANT'S
                        PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On August 20, 1990, the above named petitioner filed a petition for 
     administrative review (PAR) against an Owner's Report of Vacancy Decontrol 
     dated May 30, 1985 (which the tenant contends was not served on her until 
     June 1990.

     The owner submitted both an answer to the tenant's PAR and his own PAR.

     The pertinent facts are disputed by the parties.  The tenant claims 
     continued occupancy since 1966 with a temporary vacancy in 1973 due to a 
     fire in the apartment.  The tenant has submitted some documentary evidence 
     in support to her claim of 1966 occupancy.

     The owner contends that Mrs. Dorothy Hyman was the residential tenant of 
     the subject 2nd floor apartment and that she voluntarily vacated in 1973.  
     The owner contends that the current tenant, Mrs. Jones came into the 
     apartment as a new tenant in 1973 after the fire.

     As the status of the apartment is contested, and there has been no final 
     order, the matter is referred to the Rent Administrator for determination 
     of apartment status.  

     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 both owner's and tenant petitions for administrative review 
     be, and the hereby is dismissed.

     ISSUED:


                                                                               
                                                     JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                 Acting Deputy Commissioner
