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

               On December 19, 1988 the above named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued November 23, 1988. The order concerned housing 
          accommodations known as Apt. 1D located at 141 E. 19th Street, 
          Brooklyn, N.Y.  The Administrator directed restoration of services 
          and ordered a rent reduction for failure to maintain required 
          services.  

               The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 
          appeal.

               The tenant commenced this proceeding on September 9, 1988 by 
          filing a Statement of Complaint of Decrease in Services wherein she  
          alleged, in substance, that the owner was not maintaining certain 
          required apartment services.

               The owner was served with a copy of the complaint and afforded 
          an opportunity to respond. The owner filed a response on September 
          26, 1988 and stated, in sum, that it made repairs to the apartment 
          after it received notice of the above described complaint and that 
          the tenant executed sign-offs acknowledging these repairs.
           
               The Administrator ordered a physical inspection of the subject 
          apartment.  The inspection was conducted on October 4, 1988 and 
          revealed that certain apartment services were not being properly 
          maintained.

               On November 16, 1988 the owner provided the Administrator with 
          a copy of the tenant's withdrawal of this proceeding.  The tenant 
          stated that all repairs had been completed to her satisfaction.













          DL210327RO

               The Administrator issued the order being appealed on November 
          23, 1988 and ordered a rent reduction based on the inspector's 
          report. 

               On appeal the owner, as represented by counsel, states in 
          relevant part that the tenant withdrew her complaint before the 
          issuance of the Administrator's order and that, therefore, this 
          order should be revoked.  The petition was served on the tenant on 
          January 25, 1989.

               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be granted 
          and that the order being appealed should be revoked.

               It is apparent from the record that the owner is correct in 
          stating that the tenant withdrew her complaint prior to the 
          issuance of the Administrator's order here under review. The tenant 
          specifically stated that repairs had been done to her satisfaction. 
          Therefore, the order being appealed should be revoked.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code it 
          is 

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          granted, and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, revoked.  If arrears are due and owing the owner based 
          on the Commissioner's decision herein, the arrears may be paid off 
          in twenty-four (24) equal monthly installments or immediately if 
          the tenant vacates. 

          ISSUED:



                                                                             
                                             LULA M. ANDERSON   
                                             Deputy Commissioner
