          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.: CB110361RO
          TENSHORE REALTY LTD.                    RENT                       
          C/O SANDY JAMIESON                                        ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: BG110166OR

               On February 3, 1988 the above named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued January 27, 1988. The order concerned housing 
          accommodations known as Apt 1R located at 155-01 90th Ave., 
          Jamaica, N.Y.  The Administrator granted the owner's application 
          for rent restoration.  

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

               The owner commenced this proceeding on July 27, 1987 by filing 
          an Application for Rent Restoration wherein it alleged that it had 
          restored services for which a rent reduction order bearing Docket 
          No. AK110389S had been issued.  That application was rejected on 
          August 11, 1987.

               The tenant was served with a copy of the application on 
          September 28, 1987 and afforded an opportunity to respond. 

               The Administrator ordered a physical inspection of the subject 
          apartment.  The inspection was conducted on December 1, 1987 and 
          revealed that the owner had restored services.

               The Administrator issued the order here under review on 
          January 27, 1988 and ordered rent restoration effective October 1, 

               On appeal the owner states that the Administrator erred in 
          ordering the rent restored effective October 1, 1987.  The owner 
          argues that, pursuant to Section 2522.2 of the Rent Stabilization 
          Code, the rent restoration should have been ordered effective 30 
          days following the filing of the rent restoration application.  The 


          petition was served on the tenant on May 13, 1988.  The tenant did 
          not file a response.
               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

               The Commissioner notes that the owner originally filed for 
          rent restoration on July 27, 1987. That application was rejected by 
          the Administrator based on the failure of the owner to supply a 
          sufficient number of copies.  The owner then refiled the 
          application in August, 1987 with the proper number of copies.  
          Therefore, the Administrator was correct in ordering rent 
          restoration effective the first rent payment date occurring 30 days 
          after the refiling of the application.  The order here under review 
          is affirmed.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code it 

               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.
