          APPEAL OF                                    DOCKET NO.:
                   SHARON DE ROSA,
                                                       RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                       DOCKET NO.:
                                   PETITIONER          CA610018OR 


          On August 23, 1988, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) of an order issued on July 
          25, 1988, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 1130 Stadium Avenue, Bronx, New York, 
          Apartment 5-A, wherein the Administrator granted the owner's 
          application for rent restoration based upon a finding that those 
          services which were the subject of the Rent Administrator's 
          reduction order of October 20, 1986, under Docket No. AE630107B, 
          had been restored.

          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.

          The issue herein is whether the Rent Administrator properly granted 
          the owner's application for rent restoration.

          On December 31, 1987, the owner filed an application for rent 
          restoration, alleging that those services which were the subject of 
          the rent reduction order of October 20, 1986, had been restored.

          The tenant filed an answer to the application alleging that the 
          owner failed to adequately provide such services.

          A Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) inspection 
          conducted on June 1, 1988, revealed that the owner was adequately 
          providing such services.


          On appeal, the petitioner-tenant asserted, in pertinent part, that 
          the services remain inadequate.

          The petition was served on the owner on October 12, 1988 and on 
          October 18, 1988, the owner filed an answer to the petition stating 
          that the subject services are being adequately provided.

          After a careful consideration of the entire evidence of record the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be denied.

          The owner, on proof of restoration of those services which were the 
          subject of the Rent Administrator's reduction order is, by law, 
          entitled to an order of rent restoration.

          The record clearly shows that the Rent Administrator in granting 
          the owner's restoration application, based his findings on the 
          results of an inspection held by DHCR on June 1, 1988, which 
          revealed that the owner was maintaining those services specified in 
          the Administrator's rent reduction order of October 20, 1986.

          The Commissioner deems it appropriate to rely on the results of the 
          Division's inspection and finds that the petitioner failed to 
          adduce convincing evidence that the inspector's findings were 
          erroneous in any way.

          This order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's continuing 
          right to file an appropriate application for a rent reduction, if 
          the facts so warrant.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabiliza- 
          tion Law and Code,it is 

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


                                                       JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                       Deputy Commissioner
