          ORDER AND OPINION  DENYING  PETITION  FOR  ADMINISTRATIVE  REVIEW

          On November 23, 1987 the  above-named  petitioner-owner  filed  a
          petition for administrative review against  an  order  issued  on
          November 6, 1987 by the Administrator, (Gertz  Plaza)  concerning
          housing accommodations known as Apt  3BN,  210  Thompson  St.,New
          York,  N.Y.,  Wherein  the  Administrator  denied   the   owner's
          application to restore the rent based  upon  inspectorial  report
          which discloses that the owner  had  not  restored  the  required
          services to wit: exposed wires in the ceiling, the apartment  was
          painted in an  unworkmanlike  manner  and  some  cracks  are  not
          plastered.

          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.

          In this petition the  owner  contends,  in  substance,  that  the
          tenant has provided limited access to the apartment  and  refused
          to schedule an appointment with its workers, in order to  perform
          the necessary repairs.  

          In response to the petition, the tenant states, in substance that 
          she does provide access;  that  the  owner's  workers  made  some
          repairs but the work as performed was done  in  an  unworkmanlike
          manner.

          After  careful  consideration   of   the   entire   record,   the
          Commissioner is of the opinion that this should be denied.

          The Commissioner notes that the owner's workers had access to the 



          Docket No.BK410142RO          - 2 -

          apartment  and  could  have  completly  performed  the  necessary
          repairs.  The Commissioner finds that the Administrator  properly
          determined that  the  owner  had  failed  to  fully  restore  the
          required services by  virtue  of  the  Division  of  Housing  and






          Community Renewal (DHCR) inspection which occurred on August  27,
          1987 and thus, the Administrator was correct in not restoring the 
          rent of the subject apartment.

          This order and opinion is issued without prejudice to the owner's 
          right to  file  another  application  with  the  Division  for  a
          restoration  of  rent  based  upon  a  complete  restoration   of
          services, if the facts so warrant.

          Therefore, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, it is

          Ordered, that this petition be, and the same  hereby  is,  denied
          and the Administrators order be, and the same hereby is affirmed.

          ISSUED:

           
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Deputy Commissioner
