            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued concerning the housing accommodations 
          known as 106 West 13th Street, Apt. 4, New York, New York.

          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 petition.

          This proceeding was commenced by the filing of an application to 
          restore rent asserting that the owner had restored certain services 
          in the subject apartment.

          In an answer, the tenant denied the owner's affirmation set forth 
          in the owner's application or otherwise asserted that all required 
          repairs had not been completed.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject apartment was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of the following 
          defective conditions:  Active leak around heating pipe in kitchen, 
          ceiling holes from water damage, inadequate janitorial services. 

          The Rent Administrator denied the owner's application to restore 
          rent.





          In its petition for administrative review, the owner states in 
          substance, that a new cold water pipe was installed, that there is 












          DD410019RO

          landlord/tenant litigation pending, that the tenant has not paid 
          rent, that the owner is being harassed, that the tenant has filed 
          other complaints which are pending, and that the owner should be 
          permitted to make a physical inspection with all parties present.
            
          After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion 
          that the petition should be denied.

          It was proper for the Administrator to deny the owner's application 
          to restore the rent based on the report of its inspector which 
          asserted that conditions had not been corrected.  The owner's 
          petition does not establish any basis for modifying or revoking the 
          Administrator's order.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
          and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, 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, 
          affirmed. 

              


          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
