            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   
                                          

          On March 22, 1991, the above-named tenant filed  a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on March 13, 1991, by  a
          Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known  as
          Apartment B-53, 3521 DeKalb Avenue, Bronx, New York, wherein rent 
          was restored due to a restoration of services.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in  the  record
          and has carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant
          to the issues raised by the petition for review.

          On September 5, 1990 the subject owner, filed an application  for
          a rent restoration based on its alleged restoration of service.

          On February 13, 1991 a physical inspection of the subje t  apart-
          ment was carried out by the Division  of  Housing  and  Community
          Renewal (DHCR).  The inspector, in his  report,  noted  that  all
          complained of conditions had been corrected by the owner.

          On March 13, 1991, the Rent Administrator issued the  order  here
          under review finding that a restoration of services had  occurred
          and restoring the tenant's rent to its previous level,  effective
          November 1, 1990.

          In his petition for administrative  review  the  tenant  requests
          reversal  or  modification  of  the  Rent  Administrator's  order
          alleging, in substance,  that  rent  should  have  been  restored
          effective April 1, 1991 and not November 1, 1990.



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

          The Commissioner notes that a copy of the owner's application was 
          served on the tenant on October 15, 1990. Accordingly the correct 
          effective date for a rent restoration is the first  rent  payment
          date thereafter.  The Commissioner,  finds,  therefore,  that  no
          error occurred.

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

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


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
