            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW AND 
                                REVOKING ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER


            The above-named owner refiled and perfected a timely petition for 
            administrative review of an order issued on July 3, 1989 concerning 
            the housing accommodations relating to the above-described docket 
            number.  

            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 petition.

            The Commissioner notes that in the owner's answer to the tenant in 
            the proceeding before the Administrator, the owner asserted inter 
            alia that the tenant filed a duplicate complaint under Docket No. 
            CD220274S; that the Administrator apparently failed to address this 
            issue; that the Administrator issued a rent reduction of three 
            dollars ($3.00) based on an inspector's finding of a defective 
            kitchen floor; and that in this petition, the owner contends in 
            substance that this rent reduction duplicated the Administrator's 
            order under Docket Number CD220274S.

            The Commissioner finds as correct the owner's contention that the 
            tenant already had a rent reduction ($3.00) for the same condition 
            (a defective kitchen floor) under docket number CD220274S. 
            Accordingly, the owner's petition is granted and the Administrator's 
            order revoked.

            This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice to the owner's 
            right to file a rent restoration application if the facts so 
            warrant.

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations and 
            Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

            ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted, and 
            that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, revoked.


            ISSUED:



                                                                          
                                                  Lula M. Anderson
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
