that  no defense thereto specified in section seven hundred seventy-five
OF THIS ARTICLE has been affirmatively established by  the  owner  or  a
mortgagee  or  lienor of record, and that the facts alleged in the peti-
tion warrant the granting of the relief sought, and if the owner or  any

the  conditions specified in such petition and shall (1) demonstrate the
ability promptly to undertake the work required; and (2)  post  security

rendering  judgment  as provided in section seven hundred seventy-six of
this article, may issue an order permitting such person to  perform  the
work  within  a  time fixed by the court BUT IN NO EVENT MORE THAN SIXTY
