            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

          On March 25, 1988, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a peti- 
          tion for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on March 9, 
          1988, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing accommoda- 
          tion known as 1000 Ocean Parkway, Apartment 6-D, Brooklyn, 
          New York, wherein the Administrator terminated the tenant's 
          complaint.

          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 administrative appeal.

          The proceeding was commenced on February 5, 1988, by the filing of 
          a complaint of decrease in services, specifically failure to 
          provide heat and hot water.  On February 16, 1988, the tenant 
          confirmed that the owner had restored heat/hot water services 
          resulting in the Administrator's order of March 9, 1988 which 
          terminated the proceeding on the basis that the tenant had acknow- 
          ledged that the condition in the complaint had been corrected.  

          In the PAR, the tenant asks that the order be voided and claims 
          that he never acknowledged that the conditions were corrected.  

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be 
          denied.

          The record in this case contains the post card which was sent to 
          the tenant to confirm that the owner has either continued to fail 
          to maintain heat/hot water services, or has restored such services.  
          The card which bears the tenant's printed name was returned to this 
          agency on February 23, 1988 and indicates that services were 
          restored.

          Accordingly the Administrator's order was correct when issued.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
          and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and 
          that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby, is 
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:
