            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On December 29, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed 
          a petition for administrative review of an order issued on November 
          24, 1987, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 355 East 119th Street, New York, N.Y. 
          Apartment 2-A, wherein the Administrator determined that the 
          conditions upon which an order was issued on June 6, 1986, reducing 
          the rent have been corrected and warrant a restoration of the rent 
          in the amount of 7 1/2% per month, plus all lawful increases 
          granted subsequent to the order reducing rent.  The restoration was 
          made effective on December 1, 1987.

               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.  

               The issue herein is whether the Rent Administrator properly 
          issued the rent restoration order dated November 24, 1987.



















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BL420155RT

               On appeal, the petitioner-tenant asserts that the order 
          restoring rent which was issued on November 24, 1987 (AL520052OR) 
          is a duplication of an earlier order restoring rent which was 
          issued on April 27, 1987 (AI520083OR) and that the latest order 
          should be revoked.

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

               A review of the record reveals that the appealed order 
          duplicated an earlier order of the Rent Administrator issued on 
          April 27, 1987 and that both orders were based on the same owner's 
          application to restore the rent.  Both orders granted the owner's 
          application in full.

               Accordingly, the Rent Administrator erred in issuing the order 
          of November 24, 1987; inasmuch as an order had already been issued 
          which granted the owner's application to restore the rent in full.

               The Commissioner finds, therefore, that the appealed order 
          (AL520052OR) must be revoked.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations for New York City, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          granted, and the Administrator's order of November 24, 1987 be, and 
          the same hereby is, revoked.

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
