            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          On April 13, 1989, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on 
          March 13, 1989, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 115 West 141st Street, New York, New York, 
          Apartment 3-B, wherein the Administrator determined that the owner 
          had failed to maintain required services and ordered a reduction of 
          the legal regulated rent. 

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issue raised by the administrative appeal.

          In the petition, the owner claims that it was denied due process in 
          that it had no opportunity to respond to the complaint, that it ac- 
          quired title in October, 1988 without any knowledge of the pending 
          complaint, and that the Administrator's order and all notices were 
          sent to the prior owner.

          After careful consideration of the entire evidence of record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

          A review of the Division's records indicates that the change of 
          ownership was reported in the April 1, 1989 registration statement.  
          There was no change of ownership filed before that date.  The 
          evidence of record indicates that the prior owner answered the 
          complaint below on February 5, 1988.

          The Commissioner therefore finds that the Administrator's order was 
          properly issued to the owner at the address specified in the com- 
          plaint, and that the owner's petition does not establish any basis 
          for modifying or revoking the Administrator's order.

          The owner may file a rent restoration application if the facts so 
          warrant.


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


          ISSUED:
