           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        The above-named tenant timely filed a  petition  for  administrative
        review of an order  issued  concerning  the  housing  accommodations
        relating to the above described docket number.        

        The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record  and
        has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to  the
        issue raised by the petition.

        The owner commenced the proceeding below by  filing  an  application
        for a rent increase based on a major capital improvement.

        Thereafter, the Rent Administrator  issued  an  order  granting  the
        owner's request for a rent increase.

        In his petition  for  administrative  review,  the  tenant  requests
        review of the Administrator's order asserting that his vacancy lease 
        and renewal lease failed to indicate the installation of  a  capital
        improvement and its application pending before the Administrator.

        After careful consideration the Commissioner is of the opinion  that
        this petition should be terminated.

        The tenant's contention fails to indicate any impropriety  with  the
        Administrator's order which granted the owner's  application  for  a
        rent increase based on a major capital improvement.

        The tenant's allegation  that  the  owner  failed  to  disclose  the
        improvement made or its pending application before the Administrator 
        is not an appropriate defense in this appeal, however, it  would  be
        appropriate to file a rent overcharge complaint.

        Accordingly, this petition is terminated, and this order  is  issued
        without prejudice to the tenant's right to file  a  rent  overcharge
        complaint should the facts so warrant.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law  and  Code,
        and the Rent and Eviction Regulations for New York City, it is

        ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  terminated
        and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby  is,
        affirmed.
