                                                  DOCKET NO.:

          ----------------------------------x


                  ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING AS MOOT         


          On January 16, 1991, the above-named  petitioner-tenant  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review against  an  order  issued  on
          December 17, 1990.  The order concerned  housing  accommodations,
          known as Apartment 6-G located at 500 Kappock Avenue, Bronx, 
          New York.  The Rent Administrator denied petitioner's request for 
          rent reduction.

          The Commissioner has reviewed the reco d  and  carefully  consid-
          ered that portion of the record relevant to the issues raised  by
          this appeal.

          The tenant commenced this proceeding on April 18, 1990 by  filing
          an application for rent reduction  y  reason  of  decreased  ser-
          vices.  The complaint was  served  on  the  owner,  who  filed  a
          response.  The Administrator ordered a physical inspection of the 
          apartment.  The inspector attempted to gain access to the  apart-
          ment on December 3 and 7, 1990.  No  access  was  obtained.   The
          Administrator issued the order here under review on December  17,
          1990 and terminated the proceeding, citing the failure to provide 
          access.

          On appeal, the tenant states that she was away during the  period
          the inspector attempted to gain access and was never aware of the 
          impending inspection.  The owner did not file a response.

          After careful consideration of the evidence  in  the  record  the
          Commissioner is of the opinion that this   proceeding  should  be
          terminated as moot.


          While this appeal was pending,  the  Administrator  reopened  the
          proceeding at the tenant's request and ordered  another  physical
          inspection of the subject apartment.  On  August  14,  1991,  the
          Administrator issued an  order  under  Docket  No.  FG  610013-RK
          modifying upon reconsideration the order appealed  herein,  based
          on the results of the inspection report.  Accordingly, the  issue
          raised by the tenant in the petition has been rendered moot.
