            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               The above-named tenant timely filed a petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued on May 28, 1986 concerning 
          the housing accommodations relating to the above-described docket 
          number wherein the Administrator granted the owner's application 
          for rent restoration based on a finding that the defective 
          conditions had been corrected.

               The issue in this appeal is whether the Administrator's order 
          was warranted.

               The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the 
          record and has carefully considered that portion of the record 
          relevant to the issues raised by the petition.  

               The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an application 
          to restore rent dated July 31, 1985.  The owner alleged that 
          services for which a rent reduction order (Docket Number CDR 
          00329/ARL 00358-Q) was issued on July 13, 1984 had been restored by 
          the complete painting of the apartment in March 1985. 

               On August 14, 1985, the Division sent the tenant a copy of the 
          owner's application and the tenant filed on August 20, 1985 an 
          answer advising in substance that the status of the owner's 
          previous "certification of maintaining all services is unresolved."















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: ART - 11427 - Q

               On November 13, 1985 and November 21, 1985, a Division staff 
          member made physical inspections of the subject apartment and 
          reported inter alia that the "apartment appears to be recently 
          painted."

               On May 28, 1986, the Administrator issued the order hereunder 
          review, granting the application and restoring rent effective 
          September 1, 1985. 

               In this petition, the tenant contends in substance that the 
          painting "was not done in a workmanlike manner"; that "no 
          inspection was made prior to the issuance of the order; and that he 
          was not served the owner's application. 

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

               Review of the evidence of record shows that the Administrator 
          based his determination on the entire record, including the results 
          of the Division's November 13 and 21, 1985 inspection reports which 
          identified and corroborated the owner's painting of the apartment.
          In addition, the record reveals that the tenant was served with the 
          owner's application and the tenant filed on August 20, 1985 an 
          answer.

               Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the Administrator 
          correctly determined that the owner had restored services and 
          properly granted the owner's application.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent 
          Stabilization Law and Code, it is

               ORDERED, that the tenant's petition be, and the same hereby 
          is, denied, and that the Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
