             ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                           

          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on March 12, 1992 concerning the housing 
          accommodations relating to the above-described docket number.  

          The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record and has 
          carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issues raised by this administrative appeal.

          This proceeding was commenced on Novenber 27, 1991 by the tenant  
          filing a complaint asserting that the owner failed to maintain 
          various services in the subject apartment.

          On December 17, 1991, DHCR mailed a copy of the complaint to the 
          owner. Though duly notified to do so, the owner failed to answer the 
          complaint.

          The tenant filed on February 4, 1992 another statement, informing 
          DHCR that she was vacating the apartment on January 14, 1992.

          On February 24, 1992, DHCR inquired from the tenant whether she 
          permanently moved out from the apartment.

          In an answer filed on March 4, 1992, the tenant provided DHCR with 
          her new permanent address.

          By an order dated March 12, 1992, the Administrator terminated the 
          proceeding, stating that the tenant vacated the apartment and DHCR 
          was unable to obtain the information necessary to process the case.

                                          1












          GD410008RT  

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant contends in 
          substance that she provided DHCR all the necessary information to 
          process the case.

          On April 15, 1992, DHCR mailed a copy of the petition to the owner.

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

          In this case,  it was not an abuse of the Administrator's discretion 
          to terminate the proceeding when the tenant informed DHCR that she 
          vacated the subject apartment.

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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied,  
          that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.




          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
