            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On April 29, 1988, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order  issued
          on April 6, 1988, by  the  Rent  Administrator  at  Gertz  Plaza,
          Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          94-26 34th Road, Jackson Heights, New  York,  Apartment  No.  E-7
          wherein the Administrator determined the owner's  application  to
          restore rents previously reduced under docket No. AK-130025 B.

               The Administrator's order restored rent  in  the  amount  of
          $7.00 per month  effective  May  1,  1988  based  on  a  physical
          inspection held on January 19, 1988 that revealed that there  was
          no evidence of mice, roach or vermin infestation in public areas, 
          and no evidence of dirty incinerator rooms; i.e., the  conditions
          that gave rise to the rent reduction.   

               On appeal, the tenant argues that "in the  absence  of  both
          notice   and   appearance   management   has   been    improperly
          exonerated...." and adds that the owner has not corrected various 
          conditions within his apartment. 







               The tenant appears to  be  raising  due  process  questions.
          However, the record reflects that the tenant was served  properly
          with the owner's rent  restoration  application.   Moreover,  the
          inspection confirmed that services had been restored.   In  light
          of the record  there  is  no  warrant  to  consider  this  matter
          further. 

               The Commissioner also notes that  an  administrative  appeal






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: CD 110162 RT
          of a rent  restoration  order  is  limited  to  consideration  of
          service issues in the proceedings below and is not an appropriate 
          vehicle to raise additional service matters.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the  provisions  of  the  City
          Rent Control Law and the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

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

          ISSUED:







                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
