            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               On March 30, 1987 the above named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order issued on 
          March 5, 1987, by the District Rent Administrator, 10 Columbus 
          Circle, New York, New York, concerning housing accommodations 
          known as Apartment 2G 61-15 97th Street, Rego Park.

               The issue in this appeal is whether the District Rent 
          Administrator's order was warranted.

               The applicable section of the law is Section 2528 of the 
          Rent Stabilization Code.

               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.

               This proceeding was commenced on August 30, 1984 by the 
          tenant's timely filing of an objection to the rent/services 
          registration wherein the tenant contended that she was being 
          overcharged, that the building registration had not been posted, 
          and that she had a garage space and paid a monthly rent of 
          $90.00.

               In its answer to the tenant's objection, the owner submitted 
          a complete rental history for the subject apartment along with a 
          copy of District Rent Administrator's Order Number CDR 17, 695 
          (Docket No. Q-3120365-R) issued June 6, 1986 which determined 
          that the tenant had been overcharged a total of $3,016.85 from 
          June 1, 1977 through May 31, 1986.















          DOCKET NO.: BD 110086 RO



               In Docket Number 032575 issued March 5, 1987, the District 
          Rent Administrator determined that the overcharge issue had 
          already been adjudicated under Docket Number Q-3120365-R, and 
          therefore dismissed the tenant's overcharge complaint.  The 
          Administrator further determined that the tenant paid a monthly 
          garage rent of $90.00 based on the owner's failures to refute the 
          tenant's claim.

               In this petition, the owner contends in substance that the 
          District Rent Administrator's order is incorrect and should be 
          reversed because the tenant does not and never had a garage space 
          since her occupancy date.

               The tenant did not submit a response to the owner's 
          petition.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should 
          be denied.

               A review of the record in the instant case indicates that 
          the owner has not submitted any evidence to support its bare 
          allegation that the tenant has never had or paid garage parking 
          at the subject premises.  The record also shows that the owner 
          completely ignored the tenant's claim in the proceeding before 
          the Administrator.  Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the 
          Administrator properly determined that the tenant paid a monthly 
          rent of $90.00 for garage parking.

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

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

               ISSUED:




                                                                           
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
