            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   
                                          

          On May 18, 1989, the  above-named  owner  filed  a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on May 12,  1989,  by  a
          Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          Apartment ST3, 1565 Grand  Concourse,  Bronx,  New  York  wherein
          rent was reduced due to a diminution of service.

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

          On May 12, 1989 the Rent  Administrator  issued  the  order  here
          under review finding that a diminution of services  had  occurred
          and reducing the tenant's rent to the level in  effect  prior  to
          the last rent  guideline  increase  which  commenced  before  the
          effective date of the rent reduction.

          In its petition for administrative review the owner alleges  that
          the property was transferred to a new owner on February  2,  1989
          and requests that its name be removed from DHCR  records  as  the
          responsible party for the property.

          After careful consideration the Commissioner is  of  the  opinion
          that this petition should be denied.



          The Commissioner notes that on September 13,  1989  the  building
          which is the subject of this proceeding was registered  as  being
          owned by the 1565 Grand Concourse  Realty  Corp  and  managed  by
          Robert Heinman.  It is further noted  that  the  new  owner  took
          title  to  the  property  subject  to  the  rights,  duties,  and
          liabilities of its predecessor in interest.

          During the proceeding under review, the petitioner was  named  by
          the complaining tenant as the owner of the property and, on April 







          DE 610297-RO
          20, 1988 the petitioner, by its employee, K. Roulett,  interposed
          an answer to the tenant's complaint which bore the stamp  of  the
          petitioner.  Accordingly, the Commissioner finds  that  the  Rent
          Administrator did not err  in  the  proceeding  under  review  by
          naming the petitioner as the owner of the property.

          Since September 13, 1989 the petitioner is no  longer  listed  as
          the owner of record of the subject building by this Division.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code,  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:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
