                                   PETITIONER          45 Wadsworth Terrace 
          ----------------------------------x            New    York,    NY

                                                            
            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named tenant refiled a timely petition for  administra-
          tive review of an order issued concerning the housing  accommoda-
          tions relating to the above described docket number.

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

          The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an application  as-
          serting that it had restored and was maintaining certain services 
          in the subject building.

          In the answer, the tenant denied the allegations set forth in the 
          application and asserted that  all  required  services  were  not
          being provided.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector who confirmed that services had been restored.

          The Rent Administrator found a restoration of these services  and
          further ordered, a restoration of the stabilization rent.

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant  states  in
          substance, that services are deficient, that the owner made false 
          statements, and that the inspection was unsatisfactory.  Attached 
          to the petition are photographs in support of the allegations  of
          defective conditions.


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

          The Commissioner notes that probative  value  of  the  inspection
          report outweighs that of the tenant's photographs which are them 
          selves inconclusive, and which were not submitted  into  evidence
          during the proceeding under review. 







          FE 510382-RT
          The Commissioner notes that while the tenant questions t e  find-
          ings of fact the record clearly reflects those findings by virtue 
          of DHCR inspection which occurred on March 4, 1991.

          Therefore, the Commissioner finds that the administrator properly 
          relied on the results of the inspection, and that, based thereon, 
          the administrator properly determined that the owner had restored 
          services and properly restored the tenant's rent.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili 
          zation Law and Code, it is,

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

          ISSUED:

                                                                           
                                                   ELLIOT SANDER
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
