          APPEAL OF                                    DOCKET NO.: CC610087RT

                    Joyce Atterberry,
                                                       RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                       DOCKET NO.: BG630041OR



          On March 23, 1988, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          petition for administrative review of a order issued on March 8, 
          1988, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 711 Walton Avenue, Bronx, various 
          apartments, wherein the Administrator determined that the 
          conditions upon which an order reducing the rent was issued have 
          been corrected and granted the owner's application to restore rent.

          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.

          On July 11, 1987 the owner applied for a restoration of rent which 
          had been reduced in an order issued on April 16, 1986.  On December 
          2, 1987 a DHCR staff inspector conducted an inspection of the 
          premises which determined that adequate heat and hot water were 
          being provided at the time of inspection.  Thereafter, on March 8, 
          1988 the Administrator issued its order restoring the rent as of 
          November 1, 1987.

          In the PAR, the tenant states that there were four days in March, 
          1988, after the order was issued, that there was no heat or hot 
          water.  The tenant includes with the PAR copies of complaint forms 
          of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, Office 
          of Rent and Housing Maintenance which acknowledge receipt of the 
          tenant's complaint of lack of hot water in the apartment on four 
          days between June and September, 1987.

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


          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 the owner was maintaining required 

          The substance of the tenant's complaints, both before the date of 
          the inspection and after the date of the order, are not established 
          and, therefore, are insufficient to refute the inspection findings.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
          and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, 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, 


                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
