            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          On April 13, 1987,  the  above-named  petitioner-tenant  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order  issued
          on March 16, 1987 by  the  Rent  Administrator  at  Gertz  Plaza,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          246-09 Union Turnpike,  Bellerose,  New  York,  Apartment  2D5-2,
          wherein the Rent Administrator granted  the  owner's  application
          to restore rent previously reduced under Docket No. 77835-P. 
                 
          The Administrator restored the rent effective May 1,  1986  based
          on findings that the tenant had failed to keep scheduled appoint 
          ments with the Division's inspector.  An examination of the  case
          record also disclosed assertions by the owner that the tenant had 
          refused the owner access to correct the conditions.

          On appeal, the tenant requests that the  effective  date  of  the
          rent restoration be modified to November 1, 1986 to  reflect  the
          actual restoration of services on October 24,  1986  pursuant  to
          negotiations between the parties.

          The applicable law is Section 2523.4 of  the  Rent  Stabilization
          Code.

          After careful consideration the Commissioner is  of  the  opinion
          that the petition should be denied.



          The record below and on appeal reflects that the tenant  provided
          the owner access to the tenant's apartment only after extensive
          negotiations to arrive at mutually convenient repair dates,  des-
          pite the owner's stated readiness and  willingness  to  undertake
          repairs promptly.  The tenant also  failed  to  explain  why  the
          Division's inspectors were not provided access.

          Based on the record of the tenant's  failure  to  cooperate  with
          both the Division's and the owner s  personnel,  the  Administra-







          BD 110111-RT
          tor's rent restoration order was proper and should be affirmed.


          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,  denied
          and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby
          is, affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                              
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Acting   Deputy   Commissioner
