            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

          On June 13, 1990, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a petition 
          for administrative review of an order issued on June 6, 1990, by 
          the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing accommodation known 
          as 37-06 72nd Street, Jackson Heights, New York, Apt. 6-I, wherein 
          the Administrator reduced the tenant's rent upon a finding of a 
          decrease in services.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issue raised by the administrative appeal.

          This proceeding was commenced by the filing of a complaint by the 
          tenant on March 6, 1989 alleging a decrease in services.  On May 8, 
          1990 the apartment was inspected by a Division employee.  The 
          inspection results confirmed the conditions complained of and as a 
          result the Administrator reduced the rent by order dated June 6, 
          1990.

          In its PAR the owner contends that the conditions found in the 
          inspection have been corrected.  The owner does not allege when the 
          repairs were made.

          The Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be 
          denied.  The owner has submitted no evidence to indicate that the 
          order when issued was incorrect.















          EF 120227-RO




          Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the Administrator properly 
          based his determination on the entire record, including the May 8, 
          1990 physical inspection; and that pursuant to Section 2202.16 of 
          the Rent and Eviction Regulations, a rent reduction is warranted 
          based on the finding that the owner has failed to maintain essen- 
          tial services.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent Control Law and the 
          Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is,

          ORDERED, that the owner's petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          denied, and the Rent Administrator's order issued on June 6, 1990 
          be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.


          ISSUED:




                                                                           
                                                JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                Deputy Commissioner
