            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On May 13, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on April 30, 
          1987, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as Apartment 5H, 94-05 222nd Street, Queens 
          Village, NY 11428, wherein the Administrator determined that there 
          were defective windows throughout the apartment and as a result 
          reduced the rent by $12.00 per month.

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





















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BE110128RO

               This proceeding was commenced by the filing of a complaint on 
          July 11, 1986 alleging a decrease in apartment services.  In 
          response to the tenant's complaint the owner advised that the 
          complaint is a duplicate of a previous complaint filed by the same 
          tenant under Docket # AD120797S.  After an inspection conducted on 
          October 16, 1986 by a Division employee, the Administrator issued 
          the April 30, 1987 order reducing the rent.

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

               A review of the record contained in Docket #AD120797S shows 
          that on February 27, 1987 the administrator issued an order 
          reducing this tenant's rent by $16.00 for the same conditions as 
          cited in the order here under review.  The Administrator, on notice 
          by the owner of the duplicate complaints, erred in issuing the 
          order of April 30, 1987. 

               Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the administrator 
          erred in reducing the tenant's rent by $12.00 per month.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the City Rent 
          Control Law and the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is granted 
          and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is 
          revoked.  Any arrears owed the owner by the tenant as a result of 
          this order may be paid in installments of $12.00 per month until 
          all arrears are repaid. 

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
