            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   
                                          

          On July 9,  1986,  the  above-named  petitioner-tenant  filed  an
          Administrative Appeal against an order issued on June 5, 1986, by 
          the  District  Rent  Administrator,  92-31  Union  Hall   Street,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          53-11 90th Street, Elmhurst, New York, Apartment 2-M.

          The issue herein  is  whether  the  District  Rent  Administrator
          properly issued the order of June 5,  1986,  which  restored  the
          rent of the subject apartment.

          The  District  Rent  Administrator's  order,   appealed   herein,
          restored the rent  of  the  subject  apartment,  based  upon  the
          owner's  restoration  of  dishwasher  services,  which  were  the
          subject of a rent reduction order issued on June 22, 1984.

          On appeal, the petitioner-tenant alleged, in  essence,  that  the
          service restoration occurred after the issuance of the  order  of
          restoration.

          After a careful consideration of the entire  evidence  of  record
          the Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be denied.



          A review of the record on appeal shows that the tenant  submitted
          a statement signed by the building's superintendent, on June  10,
          1986, attesting that the defective  dishwasher  was  replaced  on
          December 30, 1985.

          Additionally, the Owner's Application to Restore Rent,  filed  on
          July 10, 1986, contains  a  statement  that  the  dishwasher  was
          hooked  up in working condition, as of December 30, 1985 and  the
          tenant's statement of consent to the service improvement  affirms
          the date of the installation.







          ART 116044-Q

          As there is no apparent dispute between the  parties  as  to  the
          date of the restoration of service, the Commissioner  finds  that
          there is no basis to the tenant's implicit argument to the effect 
          that the service restoration took place after the issuance of the 
          order of restoration - given the fact that the  service  restora-
          tion occurred on December 30, 1985 and the restoration order  was
          issued on June 5, 1986.

          Accordingly, the Commissioner further  finds  that  the  District
          Rent Administrator properly issued the order of restoration dated 
          June 5, 1986.


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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                                   
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
