            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          
               On April 19, 1988 the above named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued April 7, 1988. The order concerned housing 
          accommodations known as Apt. 421 located at 144-54 Sanford Ave., 
          Flushing, N.Y.  The Administrator granted the owner's rent 
          restoration application.  

               The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 
          appeal.

               The owner commenced this proceeding on July 23, 1987 by filing 
          a rent restoration application wherein it alleged that it 
          had restored services for which a rent reduction order bearing 
          Docket No. AI110439S was issued.  The Commissioner notes that the 
          rent had been ordered reduced based on findings of defective and 
          leaking kitchen faucet and roach infestation in the kitchen and 
          bathroom. The tenant was served with a copy of the complaint and 
          afforded an opportunity to respond. 
           
               The Administrator ordered a physical inspection of the subject 
          apartment.  The inspection was conducted on February 12, 1988 and 
          revealed that the owner had restored services.

               The Administrator issued the order here under review on April 
          7, 1988 and ordered rent restoration based on the inspector's 
          report.

               On appeal the tenant states that no rent reduction was given 
          in the order here under review.  The petition was served on the 
          owner on June 6, 1988.

               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

               The tenant has not stated a valid objection to the order here 
          under review.  The rent reduction the tenant speaks of was granted 
          in the rent reduction order and the Administrator correctly issued 
          the rent restoration order based on the above described inspector's 
          report.  The order here under review is affirmed.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code it 
          is 

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

          ISSUED:



                                                                             
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
