            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          On October 26, 1992, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on 
          October 15, 1992, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 400 East 57th Street, Apartment 10-A, 
          New York, New York, wherein the Administrator determined tenant's 
          application for a rent reduction based upon the owner's alleged 
          failure to provide adequate heat and hot water.

          The challenged order denied the tenant's application and terminated 
          the proceeding on the ground that the tenant had failed to provide 
          access to the Division's inspector on September 22 and September 
          23, 1992.

          On appeal the tenant claims she was never notified that DHCR had  
          scheduled an inspection.

          However, the record below reveals that the notice of the September 
          22, 1992 inspection was mailed on September 8, 1992, properly 
          addressed.  The record also contains a duplicate of a notice, pre- 
          pared by the inspector on-site and left at the tenant's premises, 
          advising that he would return the following day, September 23, 
          1992.  

          The record shows that the Administrator processed and determined 
          the tenant's application properly, and in accordance with the 
          agency's normal procedures.  The tenant's bare claim on appeal that 
          she did not have notice of the inspection does not warrant further 
          consideration.














          GJ410242RT        




          This order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's right to 
          apply for a rent reduction for current service decreases, as the 
          facts may warrant.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili- 
          zation Law and Code, it is

          ORDERED, that the owner's 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
