                               JAMAICA, NEW YORK 11433

          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.: DF110065RO
          G.K.J. SUBRAJ                           RENT           
                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: CH110171OR


          On June 1, 1989 the above named petitioner-owner filed a Petition 
          for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued on May 19, 1989, by the Rent Administrator, 
          concerning the housing accommodations known as Apt. 9G, 88-05 
          Merrick Blvd., Jamaica, NY, wherein the 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 
          restorations application on August 18, 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 February 22, 
          1988 under Docket No. BG110163B. 
          The application was sent to the tenants by DHCR on September 19, 

          A physical inspection by DHCR on April 25, 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 October 1, 1989.

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

          The petition was served on the tenant on September 14, 1989 and in 
          response, the tenant states that the owner has not restored 


          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 application on the tenant.  
          Since the evidence of record establishes that the application was 
          sent to the tenant on September 19, 1988, the rent restoration 
          should be effective October 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 this 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
