            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW     
                          
               On November 8, 1989, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed 
          a petition for administrative review of an order issued on October 
          31, 1989, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 93-49 222 St., Apt. 1Y, Queens Village, NY 
          wherein the Administrator ordered a partial restoration of 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.

               This proceeding was commenced by the filing by the owner of an 
          application to restore rent which had been reduced under order 
          BL120750S issued on December 12, 1988. An inspection conducted by 
          the Division on October 5, 1989 determined that the services had 
          been partially restored and granted a restoration of $1.50 per 
          month.

               In the PAR, the tenant states that the order partially 
          restoring rent contains the statement that the owner may refile for 
          the remaining rent restoration upon repairing the kitchen floor.  
          The order reducing the rent, however, describes the service 
          reduction as kitchen and adjacent floor.  In this PAR, the tenant 
          wants the rent restoration order to be modified to include the 
          adjacent floor.  Tenant further states in the PAR there has been no 
          attempt to correct the kitchen and adjacent floor.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that the tenant's PAR 
          should be denied. 

               The Commissioner finds that the statement in the rent 
          restoration order merely acts to remind the owner of the 












          DK120382RT

          outstanding service reduction and does not serve to alter or modify 
          the rent reduction order.  The tenant's allegation that the owner 
          has not repaired the floors is irrelevant in this proceeding, as 
          the order herein appealed makes no such finding.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the City Rent Law and the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          granted, and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby 
          is, revoked in accordance with this order and opinion.



          ISSUED:
