            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW     
                          
               
               On May 27, 1992, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          timely petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued 
          on May 20, 1992, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 3150 Roberts Ave., Apt. 6K, Bronx, N.Y. 
          wherein the Administrator reduced the rent based upon a finding 
          that certain services were not being maintained.

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

               This proceeding was commenced by the filing of a complaint of 
          decrease in services on October 4, 1991.  An inspection conducted 
          by a Division employee confirmed existence of some of the 
          complained of conditions which resulted in the issuance of the 
          Administrator's order.

               In the PAR, the owner contends that the order is in error 
          since the tenant had not complained of mold in bedroom 2, and floor 
          covering in bedroom 1 is not a service which the owner supplies.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be 
          denied.

               The tenant's complaint dated September 26, 1991 and received 
          by the Division on October 4, 1991 clearly states "mold grows on 
          wall and windows and inside closet in baby's room".  It further 
          states that there is a "large hole under floor under radiator" in 
          the master bedroom.

               The Commissioner, therefore, rejects the owner's contention 
          that the conditions found by the inspection were not the conditions 
          complained of.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization 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:
