            ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDINGS TO RENT ADMINISTRATOR

              The  above-named  owner   filed   a   timely   petition   for
          administrative review of an order issued concerning  the  housing
          accommodations described above.

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

              The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an  Application
          for increase of Maximum Rent with  the  Administrator,  based  on
          alleged improvements it made to the subject apartment.

              The Administrator requested a copy  of  the  cancelled  check
          from the owner, as evidence for the expenditure claimed above.

              Approximately one month later, the  Administrator  issued  an
          Order denying the  owner's  application,  based  on  the  owner's
          failure to serve the Administrator with a copy of  the  cancelled
          check.

              In its petition for administrative review  the  owner  claims
          that it did serve the Administrator with a copy of the  cancelled
          check.   Included with its petition is a copy of a  cover  letter
          advising the Administrator that the owner is enclosing a copy  of
          the cancelled check.  Said letter was  stamped  by  a  DHCR  date
          stamp, said date indicating timely submission by the owner.

              Based on the evidence  above,  the  Commissioner  is  of  the
          opinion  that  this  proceeding  should  be   remanded   to   the
          Administrator.   The  Commissioner  feels  that  the  owner   has
          presented convincing evidence that the information  requested  by
          the  administrator  was  presented  by  the  owner   before   the
          Administrator on a timely basis.
              THEREFORE in accordance with the provisions of the  Rent  and
          Eviction Regulations, it is.

              ORDERED that this  proceeding  be  and  the  same  hereby  is
          remanded to the Administrator below for  reconsideration  on  its
          merits.

                                             Acting Deputy Commissioner
