                              PETITIONER      : 
          ------------------------------------X                             

            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On August 7, 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  located
          at 8124  Ridge  Boulevard,  Apartment  4D,  Brooklyn,  New  York,
          wherein the Administrator determined the tenant's complaint of  a
          reduction of services.

               The challenged order reduced  the  tenant's  rent  based  on
          findings, revealed by inspection on April  23,  1987,  of  severe
          water damage to the paint and plaster of the bathroom  walls  and
          ceiling, peeling paint around the bedroom window, and a defective 
          living room window.

               On appeal the owner requests that the Administrator's  order
          be reversed on the grounds that the source  of  the  problem  was
          found on August 3, 1987 and that arrangements were being made  to
          correct the problem.  The owner also noted that the building  was
          pointed in 1985.





               The owner's statement  constitutes  an  admission  that  the
          conditions which gave rise to the rent reduction continued  after
          the date of the Administrator's  order.   Consequently  the  rent
          reduction was warranted, notwithstanding the owner's  good  faith
          efforts to address the problem. 

               The owner may file a rent restoration application predicated 
          upon the restoration of services, if he has not done so already.






          ADM. APPEAL DOCKET NO. BH 210215 RO

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

               ORDERED, that this administrative appeal be,  and  the  same
          hereby is, denied  and  that  the  order  of  the  District  Rent
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
