5. Appeal - Time Certain - 7:15 p.m.

Appeal T-4471; 1830 Hearst Avenue. This is an appeal of a master-tenant who claims that the 60%-40% rent split set by the hearing examiner is unfair. Appellant argues that a 65%-35% split is more equitable. The subtenant had been paying 77% of the rent, while appellant paid 23%. The Board's practice is to defer to the findings of the hearing examiner when reviewing findings of fact based primarily on testimonial evidence, provided the findings are based on substantial evidence in the record. Here, the findings are based on such evidence. For this reason, it is recommended that the decision of the hearing examiner be affirmed.
