           ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW  
                                          


          On July 10,  1987,  the  above-named  petitioner-owner  filed  an
          Administrative Appeal against an order issued on  June  4,  1987,
          by the District Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall  Street,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          200 Corbin Place, Brooklyn, New York, Apt. 2-A.

          The issue herein is whether the petitioner-owner was ever  served
          with a copy of the tenant's objection to t e  services  registra-
          tion; thus affording it with an opportunity  to  respond  to  the
          tenant's allegations.

          The  District  Rent  Administrator's  order,   appealed   herein,
          determined, inter alia, that on March 30, 1987, notice was mailed 
          to the owner; that the owner failed to answer and that  based  on
          the evidence of record and the  owner's  failure  to  refute  the
          tenant's factual allegations, various specified services are pro 
          vided by the owner.  The registration statement for  the  subject
          apartment was amended to reflect these facts.

          On appeal, the petitioner-owner alleged that it never received  a
          copy of the tenant's objection to the rent services  registration
          and was, therefore, deprived of an opportunity to respond to  the
          tenant's allegations.

          In response, the tenant contends, in substance, that there is  no
          reason to overturn the District  Rent  Administrator's  order  of
          June 4, 1987.


          After a careful consideration of the entire  evidence  of  record
          the Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be remanded to the District Rent Administrator for further 
          processing.

          A review of the record  reveals  that  the  petitioner-owner  was
          never served with  a  copy  of  the  tenant's  objection  to  the
          services  registration  and  was  not  given  an  opportunity  to






          BG 210245-RO
          participate in the proceeding befo e  the  District  Rent  Admin-
          istrator.

          A notice, dated March 30, 1987, containing a copy of the tenant's 
          objection to the services registration was mailed to the owner at 
          26 Court Street, Brooklyn, New York, but the file  clearly  shows
          that envelope was returned to the sender  and  that  the  owner's
          current address is 166 Montague Street, Brooklyn, New York.

          Accordingly, the Commissioner finds  that  due  process  requires
          that this proceeding be remanded to the  Rent  Administrator  for
          the purpose of serving a copy of the tenant's complaint upon  the
          current owner and affording the current owner an  opportunity  to
          respond to the tenant's allegations.


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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  granted
          to the extent of remanding this proceeding to the  District  Rent
          Administrator for further  processing  in  accordance  with  this
          order and opinion.


          ISSUED:



                                                                      
                                              JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                              Acting Deputy Commissioner
