                                  JAMAICA, NY 11433

          APPEAL OF                                    DOCKET NO.: DC130206RO

                    JAIRAJ Associates,
                                                       RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                       DOCKET NO.: CD130182OR


          On July 6, 1989, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a petition 
          for administrative review of an order issued on February 16, 1989, 
          concerning the housing accommodations known as various apartments 
          at 88-05 Merrick Boulevard, Jamaica, New York, wherein the 
          Administrator granted the owner's rent restoration application and 
          restored the rent effective September 1, 1988.

          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 administrative appeal.

          A review of the record reveals that on July 8, 1988, the owner 
          filed a rent restoration application in which it was stated that 
          all services for which a rent reduction order was issued on April 
          13, 1988 in Docket No. BH110175B had been restored.

          The application was served on the tenants on August 10, 1988.

          A physical inspection on October 24, 1988 by DHCR confirmed that 
          all services had been restored, and based on this inspection, the 
          order appealed herein was issued by the Rent Administrator.

          In the petition for administrative review, the owner asserts that 
          the rent restoration should be effective June 1, 1988 because the 
          application was filed on April 19, 1988.

          The petition was served on the tenants on June 5, 1989.

          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion 
          that the petition should be denied.


          A rent restoration for rent stabilized tenants is effective the 
          first of the month following service of the application on the 
          tenants.  Although the former owner did attempt to file a 
          restoration application which was received by DHCR on April 21, 
          1988, the documents were returned to the owner on June 18, 1988 
          because they were incomplete in that they did not include an 
          original and two copies of the application for each tenant or a 
          copy of the rent reduction order.  A completed application was 
          resubmitted by the owner on July 11, 1988 which was then served on 
          the tenants on August 10, 1988.  The Administrator correctly 
          granted the application with an effective date of September 1, 

          THEREFORE, in accordance with 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, 



                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
