            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on May 3, 1988, concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 1177 East 98th Street, Apartment 4L, 
          Brooklyn, New York, wherein the Rent Administrator determined the 
          tenant's complaint of decreased services. 

          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 tenant commenced this proceeding by filing a complaint 
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain services in 
          the subject apartment, in that there were no blinds or screens in 
          the apartment when she took occupancy.

          In an answer, the owner denied the allegations that the tenant was 
          entitled to these services.

          Notices were sent to the tenant requesting verification of the 
          owner's assertions.  The tenant failed to reply to the notices.  
          However, the Rent Administrator terminated the proceedings based on 
          an incorrect finding that the owner had failed to submit evidence. 




          In the petition for administrative review the owner points out that 
          it responded to the tenant's complaint and that no further 












          CE210263RO

          information was requested from the owner. 

          The tenant responded reiterating the contention in the complaint 
          below, that the owner was required to provide venetian blinds for 
          the subject apartment, and asserting that the owner is providing 
          these services for other apartments.

          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion 
          that the owner's petition should be granted.    

          The Rent Administrator's order is amended to reflect that the 
          tenant, not the owner, failed to submit information/evidence 
          necessary to process the case.  In all other respects, the Rent 
          Administrator's order should be affirmed.

          The Rent Administrator's determination, as amended, terminating the 
          proceedings based on a finding that the tenant defaulted below, is 
          without prejudice to the tenant's right to file a new complaint.   

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

          ORDERED, that the owner's petition be granted and that the Rent 
          Administrator's order be affirmed, as modified in accordance with 
          the above.    

               


          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
