           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITIONS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW  


          The Commissioner has consolidated these petitions as they involve 
          common questions of law and fact.

          Various tenants and the tenant representative filed time y  peti-
          tions for administrative review of an order issued on  April  17,
          1991, by a Rent Administrator concerning various housing accommo 
          dations in the premises known as 122 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, 
          New York, wherein rents were restored due  to  a  restoration  of
          services.

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

          On April 17, 1991 the Rent Administrator issued  the  order  here
          under review finding that a restoration of services had  occurred
          and restoring the rents of all tenants  who  had  joined  in  the
          original complaint with the exception of t e  tenants  of  Apart-
          ments 4K, 3N, 15F, 15M, 15B, 15H, 15L, 5E, 5J, 5L,  3F,  4F,  5N,
          and 5D (cited in the order as  "5-O").   The  Rent  Administrator
          found:

                   "Tenants in apartments 4K, 3N, 15F, 15M, 15B,
                    15H, 15L, 5E, 5J, 5L, 3F, 4F,  5N  and  5O  did
                    not receive  a  rent  reduction  due  to  their
                    failure to join in  the  original  application.
                    Therefore  no  rent  restoration  is  warranted
                    for these tenants."


          In their petitions for administrative review several tenants  and
          the  tenant  representative  request  modification  of  the  Rent
          Administrator's order alleging in substance that the  tenants  of
          these apartments had joined in the  original  complaint  and  had
          received rent reductions as a result of the original  proceeding.
          Attached to the petitions are copies of the original complaint.







          FE 210292-RT; et al.
          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of  the  opinion
          that the petitions should be granted.

          The Commissioner notes that the tenants  of  apartments  4K,  3N,
          15F, 15M, 15B, 15H, 15L, 5E, 5J, 5L, 3F,  4F,  5N,  and  5D  were
          signatories of the  original  complaint  and  were  granted  rent
          reductions in the original proceeding.  Accordingly, t e  Commis-
          sioner finds that the last two sentenc s  of  the  Rent  Adminis-
          trator's order (cf. supra) should be deleted.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, it is,

          ORDERED, that these  petitions  be,  and  the  same  hereby  are,
          granted, and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, modified to delete the last  two  sentences.   In  all
          other respects the Rent Administrator's order is affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                   ELLIOT SANDER
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
