          APPEAL OF                               DOCKET NO.:EC210034RO  
          Samuel Heyman,                          RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                  DOCKET NO:DF210032OR

                                  PETITIONER      PREMISES: Apt.1R
                                                  832 Classon Ave.
                                                  Brooklyn, NY      

               The above-named petitioner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review (PAR) against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued on January 30, 1990 concerning the housing 
          accomodations 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 on June 12, 1989 by filing 
          an application to restore rent based on the restoration of 

               In answer, the tenant denied the owner's allegation that 
          services were restored.

               Thereafter, a physical inspection of the subject apartment was 
          conducted on January 5, 1990 by a DHCR staff member who reported 
          that living room windows had defective screens and the kitchen left 
          window had a broken pane and top sash.

               By an order dated January 30, 1990, the Administrator denied 
          the owner's application.

               In the petition for administrative review, the owner contends 
          in substance that the tenant was the cause of the defective 
          screens, the broken pane and the top sash in that when the tenant 
          or her family forgot the keys to the apartment, they tried to gain 
          access by breaking some window screens, the window pane and the top 

               In answer, the tenant asserted in substance that defective 
          conditions continue to exist in the subject apartment.

               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 revoke or 
          modify the Administrator's determination based on a January 5, 1990 
          physical inspection which confirmed the continued existence of 
          defective conditions, warranting the denial of the owner's 
          application. The claim that the tenant caused the defective 
          conditions is unsubstantiated and not supported by the record.

               The owner may file another rent restoration application if the 
          facts so warrant. 

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, it 

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

                                   Deputy Commissioner
