     JACOB HOLZER          PETITIONER    : 
     ------------------------------------X                             

           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On September 12, 1986 the abovenamed petitioner owner filed a Petition for 
     Administrative Review against an order issued on August 12,  1986  by  the
     Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations known as 230 West 
     48th Street, Apartment 2A, New York, New York.
                                                   
     The herein appealed order of the Rent Administrator  reduced  the  subject
     stabilized rent to reflect roach infestation in public areas and defective 
     windows throughout the apartment.  The  order  was  based  on  a  physical
     inspection conducted on June 10, 1986.

     In his petition the owner alleges that he  provides  regular  exterminator
     service, submitting invoices, and that the tenant refused  access  to  his
     superintendent in August 1986 and to a contractor in  June  1986  to  make
     repairs, submitting statements from those persons.

     In response the tenant, among other things, denies that she  ever  refused
     access.

     It appears that services were ultimately restored and a  subsequent  order
     was issued on January 20, 1989 restoring the rent (CB 410076-OR).

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

     A physical inspection, which carries more weight than the  allegations  of
     the parties, disclosed that the owner's attempts at extermination were not 
     effective.

     The Commissioner also notes that the owner was served  with  the  tenant's
     complaint in January of 1986 but made no allegations of difficulty gaining 
     access until after the Administrator's order was issued.  It also  appears
     that the owner had managed to gain access to make  other  repairs  in  the
     apartment.

     The Commissioner finds that the Administrator's determination was correct.

     This order does not affect the abovenoted rent restoration order.

     THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, it is

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is,  denied  and  that
     the order of the Rent Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.


     ISSUED:

                                                    Deputy Commissioner
