            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          
               On August 29, 1988 the above named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued August 16, 1988. The order concerned various 
          housing accommodations located at 305 Henry Street, Brooklyn, N.Y.  
          The Administrator denied the tenant's complaint of failure to 
          maintain requires services.

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

               The tenant commenced this proceeding on December 3, 1987 when 
          6 tenants joined in filing a Statement of Complaint of Decrease in 
          Services wherein they alleged that the owner was not maintaining 
          certain required building services. The owner was served with a 
          copy of the complaint and afforded an opportunity to respond.      
                                                   
               The Administrator ordered a physical inspection of the subject 
          building.  The inspection was scheduled to be conducted on March 
          16, 1988 however, the petitioner-tenant herein notified the 
          Administrator by telephone that services had been restored in the 
          subject building and that a physical inspection was not 
          necessary.     The Administrator issued the order here under review 
          on August 16, 1988 and terminated the proceeding.

               On appeal the tenant states that the owner has not restored 
          all services.  The petition was served on the owner on October 20, 
          1988. 
           
               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

               The record reveals that the petitioner-tenant herein contacted 












          CH220140RT

          the Administrator and stated that a physical inspection of the 
          subject building was not necessary since services had been 
          restored.  The Administrator correctly terminated the complaint 
          based on the statments of the tenant.  The order here under review 
          is affirmed.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 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
