          -----------------------------------x


            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review (PAR) of an order issued concerning the housing accommoda- 
          tions known as 2900 Briggs Avenue, Apartment 18, Bronx, New York.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issues raised by the petition.             

          The tenant commenced this proceeding by filing a complaint 
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain heat/hot water 
          services in the subject apartment.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject apartment conducted by a 
          Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) inspector, 
          determined that heat/hot water services were adequate.

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant denies the 
          inspection findings.

          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion 
          that the petition should be denied.

          Pursuant to Section 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code, DHCR is 
          required to order a rent reduction, upon application by a tenant, 
          where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain required 
          services.  The tenant's petition does not establish any basis for 
          modifying or revoking the Administrator's order which determined, 
          based on a physical inspection, that adequate heat/hot water 
          services were being provided.

          that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby, is 
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:
