             ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING CONSOLIDATED PETITIONS FOR
             ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW AND AFFIRMING ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER
                         DK110736-S ISSUED ON JUNE 4, 1991

        On May 16, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition  for
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  April  12,  1991,
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  The tenant's petition is consolidated with 
        this petition because it involves common issues of law and fact.

        This administrative appeal  is  being  determined  pursuant  to  the
        provisions of 2520.6(r) and 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code.

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

        It is noted that on June 4, 1991, the Administrator  issued  another
        order voiding its April 12, 1991 order because the issues of screens 
        and  the  intercom  system  had  already  been  decided   in   other
        proceedings.

        The record indicates that window screens are a required  service  to
        be provided by owner in this apartment (ARL11648-Q);  and  that  the
        legal rent was reduced for six (6) missing window screens in  living
        room, kitchen, master bedroom and a  defective  screen  in  bathroom
        under Administrative Order issued on  April  19,  1991  (Docket  #BB
        120067-RT/ AG 110033-S) effective August 1, 1986.

        The record further indicates that the intercom system was not  found
        to be  a  required  service  under  proceeding  #QCS-000151-B  which
        subsequently was affirmed in Administrative Order issued on December 
        13, 1989 (Docket Numbers BB-130149-RT; BB-130151- O  and  BB-130356-
        RO) and further affirmed  upon  reconsideration  pursuant  to  Court
        Order No. SJR-4776 and BE-110127-RO issued on May 24, 1991.

        The tenant is advised that rent reduction as to the screens is still 
        in effect and has not been voided by the June 4, 1991 order.
        The owner is advised that this Order and Opinion is  issued  without
        prejudice to the owner filing  an  application  for  restoration  of
        services in respect to the screens, if the facts so warrant. 

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






          Docket No: FE-1100161-RO, FF-110646-RT

        ORDERED, that this consolidated petition be, and the same hereby is, 
        terminated and that the District Rent  Administrator's  order  under
        the above-described number issued on June 4, 1991 be, and  the  same
        hereby is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
