                    ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING THE PROCEEDINGS



          The Commissioner has consolidated these petitions as they involve 
          common questions of law and fact.

          The above-named tenants filed and refiled  timely  petitions  for
          administrative review of an order issued on March 14, 1991, by  a
          Rent Administrator concerning the housing  accommodations,  known
          as Apartment 4-J and 2-M, 28 Marine Avenue, Brooklyn,  New  York,
          wherein the Rent Administrator  determined  that  the  owner  was
          entitled to a rent increase based on major  capital  improvements
          (MCI).

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in  the  record
          and has carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant
          to the issues raised by the petitions for review.

          Both tenants filed petitions challenging  the  collectibility  of
          MCI increases, which had been granted  in  the  proceeding  under
          review, based  on  their  allegations  that  they  had  not  been
          afforded proper notice  that  an  MCI  increase  application  was
          pending at the time  they  took  occupancy  of  their  respective
          apartments.  Attached to their petitions  were  copies  of  their
          vacancy leases.



          Subsequent to the filings of the petitions both tenants requested 
          that their petitions be withdrawn based upon  written  agreements
          with the owner, signed by all parties and copies  of  which  were
          submitted to the Commissioner, which provide that the increase is 
          not applicable to them and will not be collected.

          Accordingly, since the  relief  sought  in  these  petitions  has
          already been obtained by the petitioners, based on mutual consent 
          of the parties and since there no  longer  exists  any  issue  or







          FD 210144-RT;  FF 210586-RT
          controversy to be determined herein, the Commissioner is  of  the
          opinion that these proceedings should be terminated.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, it is         

          ORDERED, that these  petitions  be,  and  the  same  hereby  are,
          terminated.


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
