           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On June 14, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition  for
        administrative review of an order issued on May 28, 1991, concerning 
        the housing accommodations relating to  the  above-described  docket
        number.  

        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
        issues raised by the petition.

        The original proceeding was commenced on October  16,  1990  by  the
        owner filing an application to restore rent based on the restoration 
        of services.

        Because the owner alleged in its  application  tenant's  refusal  of
        access, the parties involved  was  duly  informed  of  a  No  Access
        inspection on "February 14, 1991 at 10:00-10:30 a.m."

        Thereafter on said scheduled date,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector  who  confirmed  the
        continued existence of defective conditions.  Though  duly  informed
        of this inspection, the "owner was not present  at  time  of  inspec
        tion."

        On May 28, 1991, the Administrator denied the owner's application.

        In this petition, the owner states in substance that "tenant gave us 
        only limited access and allowed us to  work  only  on  items  tenant
        wanted us to correct."
        After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
        this petition should be denied.

        Because the owner alleged in its  application  tenant's  refusal  of
        access,  the  parties  involved  (including  the  owner)  were  duly
        informed of a No Access inspection.   According  to  the  inspection
        report, the "owner was not present  at  time  of  inspection."   The






          Docket Number: FF 110172-RO

        owner thus failed in the proceeding below and in  this  petition  to
        follow Policy Statement 90-5  "Arranging  Repairs/No  Access  Inspec
        tions."  

        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 District Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby 
        is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
