             ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

         On October 26, 1987 the above-named owner filed a petition for 
         administrative review of an order issued on October 8, 1987 by an 
         administrator concerning various housing accommodations in the 
         premises known as 323 West 83rd Street, New York, New York wherein the 
         Administrator ordered that the regulated rents for the subject 
         building be reduced due to service diminutions.

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

         This proceeding was initiated on May 20, 1986 by the tenants' filing 
         of a complaint of a decrease in building-wide services.

         On May 30, 1986 the Division of Housing and Community Renewal 
         (D.H.C.R.) mailed to the owner a notice, enclosing a copy of the 
         tenants' original complaint, requesting that the owner answer within 
         twenty days of the date of mailing.

         On June 25, 1986 the D.H.C.R. received an answer in which each and 
         every allegation contained in the tenants' original complaint was 
         addressed by the owner.

         On December 26, 1986 the D.H.C.R. conducted an inspection of the 
         subject premises which revealed a common area service diminution.  
         On October 8, 1987 the Rent Administrator thereby reduced the rents 
         for all of the regulated apartments in the subject building.

         In its petition dated October 26, 1987 the owner asserts that it was 
         not served with the tenants' original complaint.

         After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
         the owner's petition for administrative review should be denied.

         DOC. NO.: BJ 410194-RO














         The record reveals that the owner did receive the tenants' 
         complaint and that on June 25, 1986 he submitted a detailed answer 
         to the tenants' allegations.  As the owner raises no other issues, 
         and as the order of the Rent Administrator is proper on its face, 
         the Commissioner is of the opinion that the order of the Rent 
         Administrator should be affirmed.


         THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
         the City Rent and Rehabilitation Law, and the Rent and Eviction 
         Regulations for New York City, it is

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

         ISSUED:

                                      
         ELLIOT SANDER
         Deputy Commissioner
