          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.: DD110193RO    
          G.K.J. Subraj                           RENT
                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: CI110021OR

          On April 21, 1989, the named petitioner-owner filed a Petition for 
          Administrative Review of an order issued on March 21, 1989, by the 
          Rent Administrator, concerning the housing accommodations known as 
          Apt. 9G, 88-05 Merrick Blvd., Jamaica, NY wherein the Rent 
          Administrator granted the owner's rent restoration application.

          The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully considered 
          that portion relevant to the issues raised by this appeal.
          A review of the record reveals that the owner filed a rent 
          restoration application on September 7, 1988 stating that the 
          tenant had unreasonably refused access to the owner  to restore
          services for which a rent reduction order had been issued on July 
          2, 1987 under Docket No. AK110396S.

The application was sent to the tenants by DHCR on October 21, 

In answer to the application, the tenant stated that some repairs
had been done but not all.  The tenant denied refusing access.

A physical inspection by DHCR on March 1, 1989 at which both 
parties appeared revealed that all services had been restored.

Based on this inspection, the order appealed herein was issued 
restoring the rent effective November 1, 1989.

In the petition for administrative review, the owner asserts that 
the rent restoration should be effective November 1, 1988.

The petition was served on the tenant on August 17, 1989 and in 
response, the tenant states that not all services have been 
restored despite access always being given.


          After careful consideration of the evidence of record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be granted.  
          Rent restoration for stabilized tenants is effective the first of 
          the month following service of the of the application on the 
          tenant.  Since the evidence of record establishes that the 
          application was sent to the tenant on October 21, 1988, the rent 
          restoration should be effective November 1, 1988.

          Therefore, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          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 modified 
          in accordance with the order and opinion.  Any rent arrears due as 
          a result of this order may be paid by the tenant in installments of 
          twelve months.

                                             Deputy Commissioner
