            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On July 21, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner filed  an
          Administrative Appeal against an order issued on July  13,  1987,
          by the District Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall  Street,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          1885 Grand Concourse, Apartment # 45, Bronx, New York.

               The issue herein is whether the District Rent  Administrator
          properly issued the order of July 13, 1987,  which  directed  the
          owner to restore painting services to the subject apartment.

               The District Rent Administrator's  order,  appealed  herein,
          found that the tenant  did  not  request  a  rent  reduction  and
          directed the owner to restore painting services  to  the  subject
          apartment.

               On appeal, the petitioner-owner claimed  that  the  District
          Rent Administrator erred in issuing the order below  because  the
          tenant was issued a painting credit to repair the  water  damaged
          area himself. 

               After a careful consideration  of  the  entire  evidence  of
          record the Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative 
          appeal should be granted.


               The file reveals that a DHCR inspection, held on  March  11,
          1987, showed that painting repairs had  been  made  -  albeit  in
          beige rather than white.

               The Commissioner notes that the area file contains  a  fully
          executed S-1 Request For Information from  the  tenant  affirming
          that services have been restored and that all is "O.K."







          ADM. APPEAL DOCKET NO. BG-610210 RO
               Subsequently,  the  owner  submitted,  in  support  of   its
          petition, a statement of withdrawal, dated July  21,  1987,  from
          the tenant attesting to the  fact  that  "this  matter  has  been
          completed to my satisfaction."  

               The Commissioner further notes that the evidence  of  record
          includes a painting  allowance  agreement  dated  June  19,  1987
          executed by the parties to this proceeding.

               Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the  District  Rent
          Administrator erred by issuing the order of July 13, 1987.

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

               ORDERED, that this petition be,  and  the  same  hereby  is,
          granted and that the order of the District Rent Administrator be, 
          and the same hereby is, revoked.

          ISSUED:






                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
