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

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review (PAR) against an Administrator's order issued on August 27, 
            1991 concerning the housing accomodations relating  to the above- 
            described docket.

            The PAR was denied in a Commissioner's Order and Opinion under 
            Docket FI610062RO issued on March 20, 1992.

            Subsequent thereto, the owner by letter dated January 26, 1994 
            requested reconsideration thereof. This request was granted on March 
            15, 1994 to be consistent with the determination of PARS issued on 
            February 22, 1993, i.e. FJ610060RO, FJ610073RO, FJ610082RO and 
            GC610251RO. The central holding of these PARS is as follows:

                 On September 5, 1990, a letter was sent to DHCR by the owner's 
                 attorney detailing a stipulation agreement between the owner 
                 and the Tenants' Association. Said stipulation, with all 
                 parties represented by counsel, calls for the withdrawal, 
                 without prejudice, of all applications and/or complaints filed 
                 by the tenants with DHCR, including  the proceedings appealed 
                 herein.
                 
                 Based on the terms of the stipulation, the Commissioner finds 
                 that the complaints were withdrawn by the tenants prior to the 
                 issuance of the subject rent reduction orders, that DHCR was 
                 notifed in a timely manner of these withdrawals, and that the 
                 rent reduction orders should not have been issued and must be 
                 revoked. The tenants may file new complaints if the owner has 
                 not made the necessary repairs agreed to in the stipulation or 
                 if new conditions exist that remain uncorrected despite 
                 notice to the owner.


            IC610019RK








            That holding also applies to this PAR IC610019RK (On Reconsideration 
            of FI610062RO). Accordingly, the rent reduction order in EA610464S 
            concerning this proceeding is revoked.

            Rent arrears may be due the owner from the tenant as a result of 
            this Order and Opinion. Any arrears shall be paid in monthly 
            installments which shall not exceed the amount of the monthly rent 
            reductions revoked herein.

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
            and Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

            ORDERED  that the previous order and opinion issued in this 
            proceeding on March 20, 1992 is in all respects revoked, and it is

            FURTHER ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
            granted and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby 
            is, revoked.



            ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
