                                                  DOCKET NO.:EJ520873S

                                                  PREMISES:
                                                  106-116 Vermilyea Avenue
                                   PETITIONER     Apt., A32, New York, NY
          ----------------------------------X

                                          
            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on September 3, 1992 concerning the 
          housing accommodations relating to the above described docket 
          number.

          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.

          The tenant commenced this proceeding on October 31, 1990 by filing 
          a complaint asserting that her apartment door needs to be aligned, 
          painted and even replaced because it is an "old door."

          On November 19, 1990, the Division sent the owner a copy of the 
          tenant's complaint.

          In answer, the owner stated that the defective door had been 
          replaced.

          The tenant was forwarded a copy of the owner's answer, but the 
          tenant did not respond.

          On August 20, 1992, the subject apartment was inspected by a staff 
          inspector who reported no evidence of a defective, misaligned 
          apartment entry door.













          GI520261RT

                                          




          Based on the inspection report, the Administrator denied the 
          tenant's application and terminated the proceeding.

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant alleges in 
          substance that the defective door has not been repaired.  The 
          tenant contends that there are other defective conditions; and that 
          the inspection has not been performed.

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

          The evidence of record shows that the Administrator determination 
          was based upon a Division inspection report which found that the 
          apartment entry door was not defective.  The determination was in 
          all respects proper and is hereby sustained.

          The other defective conditions alleged by the tenant are beyond the 
          scope of this administrative appeal, in that they were not raised 
          below.  Petitioner may file a complaint with respect to those items 
          if the facts so warrant.

          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 Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, 
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:


                                                                             
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
