            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          On July 12, 1988, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a petition 
          for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on June 6, 1988, 
          by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing accommodations 
          known as 155-01 90th Avenue, Jamaica, N.Y., various apartments, 
          wherein the Administrator denied the tenants' application for a 
          reduction in rent based upon an alleged reduction in 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 administrative appeal.

          The issue presented is whether it was necessary for the Rent 
          Administrator to specify the name of each complaining tenant in the 
          appealed order.

          On appeal, the petitioner-owner asserted, in pertinent part, that 
          although it does not dispute the substance of the Rent 
          Administrator's order which denied the tenants' application, the 
          order should be modified to particularize all 54 tenants noted in 
          the building-wide complaint.

          The petition was served on the tenants on August 22, 1988.

          After a careful consideration of the entire evidence of record the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be denied.

          A review of the file reveals that the building-wide service 
          complaint specified the tenants of apartments 4-P, 2-B, and 3-H as 
          tenant representatives, that said complaint also contained a list 
          of signatures of all tenants who joined in the complaint, and that 
          the entire complaint was served on the owner.

          The Rent Administrator's order issued on June 6, 1988, denied the 
          tenants' application.

          The Commissioner notes that in those instances where a tenant 
          representative is specified in a building-wide complaint, it is 
          unnecessary to delineate every signatory to the complaint in the 
          Rent Administrator's order.

          Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the petitioner on appeal, 
          has not put a specific justiciable issue before the Commissioner; 
          nor has it set forth any reasons to challenge the Rent 
          Administrator's determination.

          There are no further issues to be determined herein.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of 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 
          the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

                


          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
