      IN THE MATTER OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE      Administrative Review         
      APPEAL OF                                Docket No. GC 410324 RO

           Cesar Homes Corp.,                  District Rent Administrator's
           d/b/a JCT Management,               Docket No. EG 410022 RP

                                               Tenant: Guy Bauman (Estate of)


      On March 31, 1992, the above-named owner filed a petition for 
      administrative review of an order issued on February 25, 1992 by a 
      District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations known 
      as 236 East 77th Street, Apartment No. 3, New York, New York wherein the 
      Administrator affirmed a prior Administrator's order which found that 
      the owner had collected excess rent from the tenant.  

      Subsequently, the owner advised the Division of Housing and Community 
      Renewal (DHCR) that it wished to withdraw its petition for 
      administrative review pursuant to a so-ordered stipulation of settlement 
      entered into by the owner and the representatives of the tenant's 
      estate.  Both parties were represented by counsel.  The stipulation 
      stated that the owner would withdraw its petition for administrative 
      review, and the tenant would withdraw the underlying fair market rent 

      The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition for administrative 
      review should be terminated.

      The Commissioner approves the owner's application to withdraw its 
      petition for administrative review.   However, the stipulation of 
      settlement will not be binding on future tenants.  Accordingly, the 
      legal regulated rent established by the Administrator in Docket No. L 
      3110446 T remains in full force and effect.

      To the extent that the stipulation 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.

      The owner is advised that a copy of this order is being sent to the 
      current tenant.

      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.


                                              JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                              Acting Deputy Commissioner
