         ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                         

      On April 6, 1992, the above-named owner filed a petition for 
      administrative review of an order issued on March 18, 1992, by the 
      District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations known 
      as 627 East Sixth Street, New York, New York, Apartment No. 6, wherein 
      the Administrator determined that an overcharge had occurred.

      This proceeding was commenced on December 6, 1989 by the filing of an 
      overcharge complaint.  In the order here under review, the Administrator 
      established the lawful stabilization rent for the subject apartment and 
      calculated the total overcharges (including treble damages) due the 
      tenant.  The owner's petition for administrative review requested 
      reversal of the Administrator's order based upon the owner's 
      renovations. 

      Subsequently, the Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) was 
      advised by both parties that a settlement had been reached resolving all 
      disputed matters.  A copy of the settlement agreement was included.  
      Accordingly, the owner requested withdrawal of its petition.

      The Commissioner is of the opinion that the request for withdrawal 
      should be granted.  The rent agreed to in the settlement conforms to the 
      legal stabilized rent established by the Administrator.  

      However, 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.

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












          GD 410065 RO


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



      ISSUED:



                                                                    
                                      JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                      Acting Deputy Commissioner
