           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITIONS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW  


          The above-named petitioner tenants, filed  timely  Petitions  for
          Administrative Review against an order of the Rent  Administrator
          issued November 5, 1990.  The order concerned housing  accommoda-
          tions, known as Apartments 1-C and 1-D, located at  63-90  Austin
          Street, Rego Park, New York.  The Administrator ordered a partial 
          rent restoration by reason of the own r  restoring  certain  ser-
          vices.

          The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully considered 
          that portion of the record relevant to the issues raised by these 
          appeals.             

          The owner commenced this proceeding on April 4, 1990 by filing  a
          rent restoration application.   In  Order  No.  AI  130050-B  the
          Administrator had ordered a rent reduction  of  $16.00  for  rent
          controlled tenants and a guideline for rent stabilized tenants by 
          reason of the existence of four service  deficiencies  to  wit  -
          defective intercom, public area peeling paint and plaster, defec 
          tive public hallway windows, and defective vestibule door.  

          When the owner filed for restoration the Administrator ordered  a
          physical inspection.  That inspection  was  held  on  October  9,
          1990.  The inspection revealed  that  the  intercom  was  working
          properly and new windows were  installed  throughout  the  public
          hallways.  The Administrator ordered a $7.00 per month rent res-
          toration.



          In their petition the tenants assert that the apartments are rent 
          stabilized and not rent controlled.   A  check  of  DHCR  records
          shows that the tenants are correct.  The petition is granted.  

          A rent stabilized apartment  which  is  the  subject  of  a  rent
          reduction order for  decreased  services  cannot  have  the  rent
          restored until all the services are restored.  In this case  only
          two of the four services deficiencies were found to be  restored.







          EL-110402-RT
          The Administrator's order must be revoked.  The owner may file  a
          new application when all services have been fully restored.

                                       
          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
          it is     

          ORDERED, that these  petitions  be,  and  the  same  hereby  are,
          granted and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same
          hereby is revoked.


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
