           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                        AND MODIFYING ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER

        On April 19, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  15,   1991
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  

        The issue here is whether the effective date of the rent restoration 
        order is proper.

        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 order appealed from grants the application to restore rent based 
        on restoration of services and effects the restoration of legal rent 
        on November 10, 1991.

        In this  petition,  the  owner  contends  that  "per  DHCR's  Policy
        Statement    89-1    (Failure    to    Maintain    Services     Rent
        Reduction/Restoration),  the  last  paragraph  clearly  states   the
        retroactive date is the first of the month  following  the  date  of
        service on the tenant of the owner's application  to  restore  rent.
        The order states November 10,  1990  and  should  read  November  1,
        1990."

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

        The owner's contention is correct in law and in fact.   Because  the
        tenant was mailed the owner's application to restore rent on October 
        19, 1990, the  correct  effective  date  of  rent  restoration  when
        granted should be November 1, 1990, the rent  payment  date  of  the
        month following the date when the  tenant  was  served  the  owner's
        application to restore rent.
