Section 2520.6(r) of the Rent Stabilization Code defines required
services as those services provided or required to be provided to
the continuously stabilized housing accommodation on May 31, 1968,
and all additional services provided or required to be provided
thereafter. The base date for determining required individual
apartment services in apartments which were either vacancy
destabilized or decontrolled between July 1, 1971 and June 30,
1974 is May 29, 1974.
In this case, the tenant contends that blinds are a service

never provided blinds and is not responsible for them. Based upon
the evidence of record, the Commissioner finds that the Rent
Administrator properly determined that blinds are not a service
provided by the owner.
THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code,
ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied and
the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is,
