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

          On February 12, 1993 the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review against an order issued on 
          January 12, 1993 by a Rent Administrator concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as Apartment #1B, 3488 Seymour Avenue, Bronx, 
          New York wherein the Administrator determined that certain services 
          were not being maintained, directed restoration of such services 
          and ordered a rent reduction.

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

          A review of the evidence of record reveals that the subject 
          building is not subject to regulation pursuant to the Rent 
          Stabilization Law & Code and the Rent Administrator was without    
          authority to issue the appealed order.

          In filing the complaint, the tenant did not indicate that the 
          apartment is regulated by Rent Stabilization, ETPA, Rent Control, 
          or Hotel Regulation.

          In answer to the complaint and again in the petition it is asserted 
          that the building is a Mitchell-Lama Housing Development, not 
          subject to stabilization.

          The Commissioner has confirmed that at the time the Rent 
          Administrator's order was issued, the subject building was a 
          Mitchell-Lama Housing Development and not subject to the Rent 
          Stabilization Law & Code.  The matter is, however being referred to 
          the appropraite unit of DHCR respsonsible for Mitchell Lama 
          properties.

          THEREFORE, it is

          ORDERED, that the petition for administrative review be and the 
          same hereby is granted, and the Rent Administrator's order be and 
          the same hereby is revoked.

          ISSUED:
