            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On August 13, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order  issued
          on July 31, 1987, by  the  Rent  Administrator  at  Gertz  Plaza,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          94-26  34th  Road,  Jackson  Heights,  New  York,   wherein   the
          Administrator determined the tenants' complaint of a reduction of 
          building wide service.

               The  Administrator's  order  provided  for  a  monthly  rent
          reduction  of  $7.00  based  on  the  results  of  an  inspection
          conducted on February  2,  1987  that  confirmed  infestation  in
          public areas  ($4.00)  and  that  incinerator  rooms  were  dirty
          ($3.00).  

               In the appeal the owner points out  that  the  building  has
          periodic exterminator service, and asserts that some  tenants  do
          not provide  access  for  the  free  exterminator  service.   The
          owner's petition was silent with regard to the dirty  incinerator
          rooms.

               The applicable law  is  Section  2202.16  of  the  Rent  and
          Eviction Regulations.



               The Commissioner is of the opinion  that  the  Administrator
          properly granted rent reductions based  on  the  results  of  the
          inspection.  Without disputing that  exterminator  services  were
          provided, they appear to have  been  inadequate  to  correct  the
          infestation.

               The owner's further argument  that  the  tenants  failed  to
          provide access is without merit.   The  service  reductions  were

          located in public areas.

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

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

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
