          ----------------------------------x     QS 003210-S


                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING


          On October 26, 1987, the above-named owner filed a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued September 30,  1987,  by
          the Rent Administrator, concerning housing  accommodations  known
          as Apartment 2, 138-45 Jewel Avenue, Flushing, New York,  wherein
          the Rent Administrator denied the owner s  application  for  per-
          mission to reinstate rent levels that had been reduced by a prior 
          Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) order.

          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 in the petition for administrative review.

          The original proceeding was  initiated  by  the  tenant,  by  the
          filing of a complaint  of  a  diminution  in  services,  and  was
          assigned Docket No. QS 003210-S.

          On February 18, 1986, the Administrator issued an order issued in 
          this matter, which, effective  September  1,  1985,  reduced  the
          tenant's rent to the level that had been in effect prior  to  the
          most recent guidelines increase.  The order listed the  following
          service defects:

                         Kitchen and living room window 
                         frames and sills need repairs.

          On August 25, 1986, the owner filed an applicati n  for  restora-
          tion of rent alleging that all service defects that had been  set
          forth in Docket No. QS 003210-S had been restored.  



          On September 30, 1987, the District Rent Administrator issued the 
          order under review herein denying the owner's application  for  a
          restoration of rent.

          The owner asserts in its petition that the required  repairs  had
          been made and that the Administrator's  denial  of  its  applica-
          tion was therefore not warranted.







          BJ 130168-RO

          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of  the  opinion
          that this proceeding should be terminated.

          The Commissioner notes that  by  a  subsequent  order  issued  on
          October 15, 1987 by the District Rent Administrator under  Docket
          No. BB 110053-OR, the rent was restored based  upon  the  finding
          that the repairs were completed.

          Accordingly, as the relief sought by the owner  in  his  petition
          has already been provided by the subsequent order of the District 
          Rent Administrator, the Commissioner is of the opinion  that  the
          instant proceeding should be terminated as moot.


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

          ORDERED, that  this  proceeding  be,  and  the  same  hereby  is,
          terminated.


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
