            ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW  
                             
               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order concerning the housing 
          accommodations relating to the above described docket number 
          wherein the Rent Administrator denied the tenant's application for 
          a rent reduction.

               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.

               On November 28, 1986, the tenant commenced the proceeding 
          below by filing a complaint asserting that the owner had deprived 
          her of mail service by refusing to provide a key to the mailbox.

               On December 30, 1986, the owner answered the tenant's 
          complaint asserting, in pertinent part, that it had made several 
          attempts to hand deliver a mailbox key to the tenant.

               On March 17, 1987, the mailbox was inspected by a Division 
          inspector.  The inspector stated in his report that the mailbox 
          appeared to be in good condition.

               On July 13, 1987, the Rent Administrator denied the tenant's 
          application and terminated the proceeding on the grounds that the 
          inspection of March 17, 1987, had disclosed that the complaint-of 
          condition had been corrected.

               In the tenant's Petition for Administrative Review, filed on 
          August 15, 1987, the tenant contends that the Rent Administrator's 
          determination was based on insufficient information.

               On December 2, 1987, the owner was served with the tenant's 
          petition.

               In its answer, dated December 16, 1987, the owner submitted a 
          copy of a stipulation with the tenant, wherein the tenant had 
          agreed to withdraw a DHCR Harassment Complaint with prejudice, 
          under Docket No. 17,719-HL, in consideration of receiving the 
          mailbox key assigned to the subject premises in this proceeding.

               After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the petition should be terminated on the grounds that 
          the matter regarding the mailbox key was resolved in the above 
          mentioned stipulation.

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

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



          ISSUED:
