                                                       DOCKET NO.: DC610158OR

                                   PETITIONER
          ------------------------------------x


            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          On November 8, 1989, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on October 6, 
          1989 by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 3585 DeKalb Avenue, Apt. 1D, Bronx, N.Y., 
          wherein the Administrator determined that the tenant, after repairs 
          to the fire damaged apartment, was refused access to return to the 
          apartment and denied the owner's application for a restoration of 
          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.

          This proceeding was commenced by the filing by the owner of a rent 
          restoration application dated March 28, 1989 alleging that the 
          conditions, for which the rent had been reduced under Docket No. 
          CL610354S, had been corrected.

          An inspection conducted by a DHCR staff inspector on August 8, 1989 
          determined that the tenant as well as the inspector had been 
          refused access to the apartment.  In addition to this the 
          Administrator found that the owner had failed to respond to two 
          Agency notices requesting additional information.

          In the PAR, the owner states that the tenant surrendered her lease 
          on September 29, 1989, which was before the issuance of the 
          Administrator's order.














          DK610023RO


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

          The information presented on PAR, that the tenant surrendered her 
          lease, was not raised in the proceeding below.  It is therefore 
          outside the scope of review in this administrative appeal which is 
          limited to facts and evidence which were before the Administrator.

          The Commissioner therefore finds that the owner's petition does not 
          establish any basis for modifying or revoking the Administrator's 
          order.

          The Commissioner notes that the owner was granted a restoration of 
          rent by order dated July 23, 1990 under Docket No. DK610060OR.

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

          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
