                 ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of an order issued on May 31, 1989 concerning the housing 
            accommodations relating to the above-described docket number.  

            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.

            The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an application to 
            restore rent based on the restoration of services.

            In answer, the tenant denied the owner's allegations in the 
            application.

            Thereafter on April 25, 1989, a physical inspection was conducted by 
            a DHCR staff member who confirmed the continued existence of a 
            defective intercom in the subject apartment.

            By an order dated May 31, 1989, the Administrator denied the owner's 
            application.

            In this petition, the owner contends in substance that work was done 
            on October 26, 1988.

            In answer, the tenant requested a re-inspection to prove the 
            continued existence of defective conditions.

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

            The owner's petition does not establish any basis to modify or 
            revoke the Administrator's determination based on the April 25, 1989 
            physical inspection which confirmed the continued existence of a 
            defective intercom in the subject apartment, warranting a denial of 
            the owner's rent restoration application.

            DF510127RO







            This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice to the owner's 
            right to file another rent restoration application if the facts so 
            warrant.

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
            and Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

            ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and 
            that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.



            ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                                  Lula M. Anderson
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
