            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   
                                          

          On March 27, 1991, the above-named tenant filed  a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on February 26, 1991, by 
          a Rent Administrator concerning the housing  accommodation  known
          as Apartment 7, 207-12th Street, Brooklyn, New York, wherein rent 
          was restored due to a restoration of services.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in  the  record
          and has carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant
          to the issues raised by the petition for review.

          On July 12, 1990 the subject owner, filed an  application  for  a
          rent restoration based on its alleged restoration of  service  to
          the subject apartment.  The owner's application  to  restore  the
          rent included the tenant's signed consent.

          A copy of the owner's application was served on  the  tenant  who
          was afforded two different opportunities to reply thereto.

          The tenant did not  interpose  an  answer  or  objection  to  the
          owner's application.

          On February 26, 1991, the Rent  Administrator  issued  the  order
          here under review finding that  a  restoration  of  services  had
          occurred and restoring the  tenant's  rent  effective  August  1,
          1990.




          In his petition for administrative  review  the  tenant  requests
          reversal of the Rent Administrator's order alleging that  repairs
          have not been made.

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

          The Commissioner notes that the tenant signed the owner's  appli-
          cation consenting to a rent restoration based upon  the  restora-







          FC 210434-RT
          tion of services alleged therein.  It is further noted  that  the
          tenant did not interpose an answer to the owner's application  or
          raise any objection while this proceeding was before the adminis 
          trator, even though he was afforded two opportunities to do so.

          Accordingly, pursuant to Section 2529.6 the unsubstantiated alle 
          gation being raised now, for the  first  time  on  administrative
          appeal, may not be considered herein.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, 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:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
