            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          The above-named tenant timely filed a petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on August 12,1992 concerning the housing 
          accommodations relating to the above-described docket number.

          The issue in this appeal is whether the Administrator's order was 
          warranted.

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

          This proceeding was commenced on May 13, 1992 by a tenant filing a 
          complaint, alleging that the owner had failed to maintain adequate 
          heat and hot water services.

          On June 3, 1992, the Division mailed the owner a copy of the 
          tenant's complaint.

          In response to the Division's inquiry on whether heat/hot water 
          services have been restored, the tenant filed another statement on 
          June 17, 1992, alleging that the owner had continued to fail to 
          provide hot water services.
















                                          
          GH220189RT
                                          


          An on-site inspection of the subject apartment was conducted on 
          August 20, 1992 by a Division staff member who reported that the 
          hot water temperature in the kitchen and the bathroom read 150 
          degrees Fahrenheit. 

          The Administrator issued an order based on the inspection report, 
          denying the tenant's application and terminating the proceeding.

          In his petition, the tenant contends in substance that the hot 
          water services are still inadequate.

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

          The Administrator's determination was based upon the Division 
          inspector's report which found adequate hot water services within 
          the apartment.  The determination was in all respects proper and is 
          hereby sustained.  Accordingly, this petition must be denied.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations, 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:

                                                                             
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
