     Administrative Review against an Order  issued  on                 by  the
     Rent Administrator of the District Rent office located at  
     Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, New York.

     On August 7, 1989, the Commissioner issued an order of rejection since the 
     PAR failed to set forth  the  names  and  mailing  address  of  the  owner
     affected by the petition.

     The Division record reveals that the owner filed an answer to the tenant's 
     PAR which was improperly docketed as the tenant's refiled  PAR  on  August
     17, 1991, under docket no. EI 630271-RT.

     Moreover, the reco d  indicates  that  the  envelope  address  to  tenant-
     petitioner, containing the rejection order was returned to the Division as 
     improperly addressed.

     Therefore the rejection order is reissued  based  on  an  irregularity  in
     vital matters to afford the parties their due process rights.

     This order is reissued to  afford  the  tenant,  in  accordance  witht  he
     Division's usual procedures, the right to refile a properly completed  PAR
     in a timely manner as more fully set forth below.

     Additionally, the owner's answer improperly docketed under EI 630271-RT is 
     hereby terminated.
