                                   PETITIONER

          ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW IN PART 


          The above named petitioner owner filed a petition for 
          Administrative Review against an order at the  Rent  Administrator
          92-31 Union Hall Street Jamaica, N.Y.  The order concerned housing 
          accommodations known as Apartment 4-R located at 584 Morgan Avenue 
          Brooklyn N.Y.  The Administrator ordered a rent reduction  in  the
          stabilized rent due to windows in need of  repair,  leaks  in  the
          bedroom, dining room living room, kitchen and foyer ceilings and a 
          defective roof. The order  was  based  on  a  physical  inspection
          conducted July 17, l986.

          The tenant filed her complaint  November  8,  l985.   She  alleged
          eight service problems.  The landlord answered and ,  in  summary,
          denied the allegations.  On appeal, the landlord argues

               1) That the tenant was not the legal tenant in the
                  apartment and

               2) That the problems have been corrected.

          In her answer to the petition, the tenant made no mention  of  her
          legal status and corroborated the petitioners assertions that  the
          deficiencies were corrected.

          After  careful  review  of  the  evidence  in  the   record,   the
          Commissioner grants in part the petition.  Since  both  the  owner
          and tenant agree that the services have been restored, the rent is 
          hereby restored as of February 1, 1987,  the  first  day   of  the
          month following the owner's filing of the  petition  (January  14,
          1987).



          DOCKET NO.: BA 210068-RO

          The owner is directed to allow  the  tenant  to  pay  off  arrears
          resulting from this Order and  Opinion  in  twelve  equal  monthly
          installments.  Should the tenant  vacate  the  apartment  or  have
          previously  vacated,  said  arrears  shall  be  due  and   payable
          immediately.                            


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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same  hereby  is,  granted
          in part and that the order of the Rent Administrator be,  and  the






          DOCKET NUMBER: BA 210068-RO
          same  hereby  is,  modified  in  accordance  with  the  order  and
          opinion.  



          ISSUED:
