           Richard W. McCabe,
                                               District Rent Administrator's
                                               Docket No. AI410134R

                               PETITIONER

         ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


      On July 27, 1992, the above-named owner filed a petition for 
      administrative review of an order issued on June 25, 1992 by a District 
      Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations known as 3 
      Gramercy Park West, Apartment ground floor front, New York, New York 
      wherein the Administrator determined that the owner had overcharged the 
      tenant.

      Subsequently, the owner advised the Division of Housing and Community 
      Renewal (DHCR) that it wished to withdraw its petition for 
      administrative review base on a settlement with the tenant.

      Also received by DHCR was a communication from the tenant which 
      confirmed the fact that a settlement has been reached between the 
      parties.  In the tenant's letter, he stated "... the owner has fully 
      satisfied the terms of the June 25, 1992 Order."

      The Commissioner approves the owner's application to withdraw its 
      petition for administrative review.  However, the settlement agreement 
      will not be binding on future tenants.  Accordingly, the legal regulated 
      rent established by the Administrator in Docket No. AI410134R remains in 
      full force and effect.

      To the extent that the agreement purports to settle arrearages, the 
      Commissioner notes that this is a contractual matter between the parties 
      not within the purview of the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, and not 
      subject to the jurisdiction of the DHCR.

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

      ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, terminated.


      ISSUED:

                                                                              
                                              JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                              Deputy Commissioner
