            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW    
                           
               On July 7, 1992, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on June 
          29, 1992, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 3150 Roberts Avenue, Apt. 6K, Bronx, NY 
          wherein the Administrator determined that there had been a 
          reduction in apartment services and reduced the rent accordingly.

               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 
          dated September 26, 1991 alleging various service decreases.  An 
          inspection of the apartment conducted by a Division employee on 
          June 9, 1992 confirmed the complaint of missing window screens 
          apartment wide resulting in the June 29, 1992 order reducing the 
          rent.

               In the PAR, the owner contends that screens were never a 
          provided service.

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

               The owner is incorrect in his contention that screens are not 
          a provided service.  Rent control records maintained by this agency 
          indicate that on November 29, 1965 screens were installed in the 
          apartment and therefore became a base date service at that time.

               Notwithstanding this, the Administrator's order should be 
          revoked.  A review of the record contained in Docket #EC610748S 
          shows that on February 21, 1992 the Administrator issued an order 
          reducing this tenant's rent for missing window screens among other 
          things, which is the same condition cited in the order here under 
          review.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and 
          Code, it is,

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



          ISSUED:
