            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On November 26, 1986, the  above-named  petitioner  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review against  an  order  issued  on
          October 23, 1986 by the Rent Administrator, 10  Columbus  Circle,
          New York, New York concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          59 East 79th Street, Apartment No. 3B, New York, New York wherein 
          the Administrator amended the registration. 

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

               The tenant commenced this proceeding on August 29,  1984  by
          filing a timely objection to the 1984 registration, stating  that
          a number of owner provided services had  been  omitted  from  the
          registration.

               On September 8, 1986, a copy of the objection  was  sent  to
          the owner (Solil Management  Corp,  Windsor  Place  Corp.).   The
          owner failed to respond. 

               On October 23, 1986 based on the owner's failure to respond, 
          the Administrator issued the order here  under  review,  amending
          the registration to include the services which had been cited  by
          the tenant.  




               In the appeal, the owner contends that  the  Administrator's
          order should be reversed because 1) the registration is true  and
          accurate; 2) it is not required that all the services  set  forth
          in the order be registered; 3)  the  owner  is  not  required  to
          provide all the services set forth in the order; and 4) the prior 
          owner did not receive a copy of the objection.  

               In reply to  the  petition,  the  tenant  asserts  that  the






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: AK 410571 RO
          registration as amended by the Administrator accurately  reflects
          the  services  that  are  provided  by  the  owner.   The  tenant
          believes, based on another tenant's experience,  that  the  prior
          owner did receive the objection.

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

               Review of the record discloses that a copy of the  objection
          was mailed to the prior owner at 640 Fifth Avenue, New York,  New
          York.  It was not returned to the Division by the  United  States
          postal  service  as  undeliverable.   An   examination   of   the
          Division's records reveals that in May 1986 an objection made  by
          another tenant in the same building was mailed to  the  owner  at
          the same address.  See District Rent Office  Docket  No.  26,340,
          Examining Unit.  The Division's records further reveal  that  the
          following prior owners, Solil  Management  Corp.,  Windsor  Place
          Corp. and G & s Enterprises, Inc. each have been located  at  the
          same address, 640 Fifth Avenue.   Accordingly,  the  Commissioner
          rejects the petitioner's excuse for its  default  in  responding.
           
               With respect to the petitioner's remaining contentions,  the
          Commissioner notes that scope of review of a PAR  is  limited  to
          facts and evidence which had been presented for consideration  to
          the Administrator.  Accordingly, it  would  be  inappropriate  to
          consider them for the first time in this appeal. 

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

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

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
