          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.:  EK610237RT
          CAROL CLEAVER                           RENT
                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: DI630014OR

               On November 29, 1990 the above named petitioner-tenant filed 
          a Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued November 19, 1990. The order concerned various 
          housing accommodations located at 1705 Purdy Street, Bronx, N.Y.  
          The Administrator terminated the owner's rent restoration 
          proceeding because the condition for which the rent was reduced was 
          deleted in an amended order.  

               The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 

               The owner commenced this proceeding on April 27, 1989 by 
          filing an Application for Rent Restoration wherein it alleged that 
          it had restored services for which a rent reduction order bearing 
          Docket No. BH610073B had been issued.  The Commissioner notes that 
          the rent was reduced based on a finding of defective vents. The 
          Commissioner further notes that this issue has been deleted by the 
          Administrator in amended rent reduction orders issued May 30, 1990 
          and June 8, 1990 and is no longer an active issue in this 
          proceeding. The tenants were served with copies of the application  
          and afforded an opportunity to respond. 

               The Administrator issued the order here under review on 
          November 19, 1990 and terminated this proceeding.

               On appeal the tenant states that she never received a copy of 
          the amended order deleting the vent issue from the rent reduction 
          order and that the order here under review should be reversed.  The 
          petition was served on the owner on December 17, 1989.

               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 


          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

               The Commissioner notes that the order here under review did 
          not grant the owner rent restoration , that the tenant was not 
          "aggrieved" by the issuance of this order within the meaning of the 
          Rent Stabilization Code and that, therefore, she lacks standing to 
          appeal this order.  Furthermore, the tenant is raising arguments 
          relating to the amended rent reduction order and not the order 
          terminating the rent restoration proceeding.  Based on all of the 
          foregoing, the order here under review is affirmed.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code and 
          Rent and Eviction Regulations 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.

                                             Deputy Commissioner
