 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

 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
