                                             :   RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
              MARY L. HARPER,                :   DOCKET NO. ED 220180OR
                                 PETITIONER  :

                        ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR
                                ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


         On February 11, 1991, the above-named tenant timely re-filed a 
         petition for administrative review of an order issued on December 5, 
         1990 by a Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations 
         known as 990 President Street, Apt. 5H, Brooklyn, New York.

         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 for review.

         The tenant commenced a proceeding by the filing of a complaint on 
         December 15, 1988 asserting that the landlord had failed to maintain 
         services.

         Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by a 
         Division of Housing and Community Renewal (D.H.C.R.) inspector who 
         confirmed the existence of certain defective conditions.

         On April 4, 1990, under Docket No. CL 220458S, the Rent Administrator 
         found these conditions existed and further ordered a reduction in the 
         monthly rent of the rent-controlled apartment, in the amount of 
         $11.00.

         Subsequently, the landlord applied for restoration of the maximum 
         rent, asserting that services had been restored.  Thereafter a 
         physical inspection confirmed that services were restored.

         On December 5, 1990 the Rent Administrator issued the order here under 
         review, restoring the maximum rent effective January 1, 1991.
















          DOC. NO.: FB 210272-RT


         In her petition, dated February 11, 1991, the tenant asserts that the 
         $11.00 rent reduction was not deducted from the monthly rent for the 
         subject apartment.

         After careful consideration the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
         this petition for administrative review should be denied.

         The tenant is referred to a court of competent jurisdiction regarding 
         the resolution of her assertion that the $11.00 rent reduction was not 
         deducted from the monthly rental amount during that period of time for 
         which the rent reduction order was in effect.   As the tenant raises 
         no other objections to the order under review, the Commissioner is of 
         the opinion that it should be affirmed.



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

         ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and 
         that the Order issued by the Rent Administrator be, and the same 
         hereby is, affirmed.

         ISSUED:



                                                                               

                                                 ELLIOT SANDER
                                                 Deputy Commissioner
