                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: DK220487S

                                   AFTER REOPENING

               On March 4, 1991, the above named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued February 7, 1991. The order concerned housing 
          accommodations known as Apt 4D located at 2036 Cropsey Avenue, 
          Brooklyn, N.Y.  The Administrator ordered a rent reduction for 
          failure to maintain required services.  
               On October 4, 1991 the Commissioner issued an order and 
          opinion denying the owner's petition for administrative review.  On 
          October 9, 1991 the owner requested reconsideration of the above 
          described order.  The Commissioner reviewed the record and, finding 
          that additional fact finding was necessary, granted the request for 
          reconsideration on November 15, 1991.

               The Commissioner has again reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 

               The owner's sole grounds for appeal is that the Administrator 
          erred in finding that the subject apartment was subject to rent 
          control and in ordering a $9.50 per month rent reduction.  At no 
          time did the owner state that the services enumerated by the 
          Administrator as not being maintained were, in fact, being 

               The Commissioner has carefully reviewed the rent records filed 
          by the owner for this building.  The owner is correct in that the 
          apartment in question is not rent controlled, but, rather, subject 
          to the Rent Stabilization Law.  Therefore, the Commissioner is of 
          the opinion that this petition should be granted to the extent of 
          modifying that portion of the order here under review which ordered 


          a rent reduction of $9.50 per month effective the first rent 
          payment date following issuance of the Administrator's order.  A 
          rent reduction of an amount equal to one guideline increase is 
          ordered effective the first rent payment date following service of 
          the complaint on the owner (January 1, 1989).  The owner may file 
          for rent restoration when services have been fully restored.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code it 

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          granted, and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, affirmed as modified herein.
