          ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued concerning the housing accommodation 
          known as 510 Linwood Street, Apartment #2B, Brooklyn, New York.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all 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 the proceeding below by filing a complaint on 
          February 29, 1988 asserting that the owner had failed to maintain 
          adequate heat and hot water services in the subject apartment.

          The owner did not answer the complaint, although afforded an 
          opportunity to do so.

          Thereafter, an inspection of the subject apartment was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector, on March 25, 1988, who confirmed that the condi- 
          tions, described in the complaint, were found to have been correct- 
          ed.

          In its petition for administrative review, the tenant states, in 
          substance, that there was no heat or hot water on March 22nd, 23rd, 
          or 24th of 1988 and that when the DHCR inspector arrived, the owner 
          had just fueled the boiler.

          The DHCR served a copy of the petition on the owner on June 16, 
          1988.

          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 the rent reduction, upon application by the 
          tenant, where it is found that the owner has failed to maintain 
          required services.  An inspection confirmed that the conditions 
          complained about have been corrected.  Based on this inspection, 
          the Administrator properly determined that a rent reduction was not 
          warranted.

          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, 
          affirmed.

          ISSUED:







                                                                           
                                                      JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                      Deputy Commissioner
