            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW  



          On August 1, 1989, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a Peti 
          tion for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order  issued  on
          July 10, 1989, by the Rent Administrator at Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, 
          New York, concerning the housing  accommodation  known  as  88-05
          Merrick Boulevard, Apartment 9-G, Jamaica, New York, wherein  the
          Administrator granted the owner's application  to  restore  rents
          effective May 1, 1989,  previously  reduced  per  Docket  No.  BB
          110491-S, based on decreased services.
                 
          In the petition the owner points out  that  the  above  captioned
          rent restoration proceedings were duplicative of rent restoration 
          proceedings under Docket No. CI 110036-OR.  Thereunder, on  March 
          24, 1989 the Administrator granted the owner's  rent  restoration
          application effective November 1, 1988.

          The tenant acknowledges that the owner had restored the services, 
          albeit tardily but assert, however, that the owner had not  cred-
          ited or refunded the underlying rent abatements to the tenant.

          The applicable law is Section 2523.4 of  the  Rent  Stabilization
          Code.



          The owner's petition is granted to the extent that  the  date  of
          rent restoration be amended to November 1, 1988 to conform to the 
          Administrator's prior determination under Docket N .  CI  110036-
          OR.

          The owner is cautioned to refund or credit the  tenant  with  the
          amount of the rent abatement due the tenant  from  the  effective
          date of the rent reduction April 1, 1987, until the rent restora 







          DH 110513-RO
          tion effective November 1, 1988, if not done so already.  If  the
          owner fails to do so, the tenant may obtain relief  by  filing  a
          rent overcharge complaint with the Division.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili 
          zation Law and Code, and the Emergency Tenant Protection  Act  of
          1974, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  granted
          and the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed as modified above.


          ISSUED:



                                              
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Acting   Deputy   Commissioner
