            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          On June 6, 1987, the petitioner-owner timely filed an 
          administrative appeal against an order issued on May 4, 1987 by a 
          Rent Administrator, 92 -31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, New York 
          concerning housing accommodations known as 1266 54th Street, 
          Brooklyn, New York, various apartments, wherein the District Rent 
          Administrator denied the owner's application.

          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 by the Petition for Administrative Review.

          The owner commenced this proceeding on January 9, 1986, by 
          initially filing an application for a rent increase based on the 
          installation of a new oil burner, water heater, and sidewalk at a 
          total cost of $7,600.00. 

          The order of the Rent Administrator appealed herein denied the 
          owner's application based on the owner's failure to respond to  
          notices dated August 28, 1986 and November 26, 1986.

          On appeal, the petitioner-owner states, in substance, that he has 
          submitted information for the oil burner and the gas water heater, 
          but did not respond timely because he was uncertain as to what 
          information was required. The owner further states that he was not 
          aware that the installation of a new sidewalk does not constitute 
          a major capital improvement and he is therefore withdrawing that 
          portion of his application.

          After a careful consideration of the entire record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should be denied.

















          Adm. Rev. Docket No. BF230395RO


          The file indicates that the owner was afforded an opportunity to 
          submit the required approvals and proof of payment by notices dated 
          August 28, 1986 and November 26, 1986, but failed to do so. The 
          owner responded on December 29, 1986 requesting clarification as to 
          which items were needed. However, said notices clearly and 
          specifically stated which approvals were required.

          The record in the instant case indicates that the Rent 
          Administrator properly denied the owner's application based on the 
          owner's failure to submit necessary supporting documentation 
          despite repeated agency requests for same.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          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:















                                                                             
                                                    JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                    Deputy Commissioner
