            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On August 9, 1987, the above named petitioner owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order issued on 
          July 6, 1987 by the Rent Administrator at Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, New 
          York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 20-24 31st 
          Street, Queens, New York, Apartment C5, wherein the Administrator 
          determined the tenant's complaint of a diminution of services filed 
          on October 27, 1986.

               The challenged order reduced the tenant's rent based on the 
          results of an inspection conducted on March 30, 1987 that confirmed 
          the tenant's complaints of the need for plastering repairs and 
          painting throughout the apartment, and of defective windows.  Other 
          conditions cited by the tenant were either not substantiated or 
          were found to have been addressed. 

               The record also contains correspondence between the parties to 
          arrange a mutually convenient date for repairs.  However, the July 
          14, 1987 repair date agreed upon by the parties was after the July 
          6, 1987 date of the Administrator's order.

               The owner filed an administrative appeal, but failed to allege 
          any errors of law or fact.  In addition, the tenant responded that, 
          in fact, certain repairs were not completed properly.  Other 
          allegations raised in the administrative appeal were not pertinent 
          to these proceedings.

               In light of the record, and the owner's failure to point out 
          any errors of law or fact, the Administrator's order must be 
          affirmed.

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

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

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
