               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named owner refiled and perfected a timely petition for 
            administrative review of an order issued on December 11, 1990 
            concerning the housing accommodations relating to the above- 
            described docket number.  

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

            The owner commenced this proceeding on April 13, 1990 by filing an 
            application to restore rent based on the restoration of services.

            On May 3, 1990, DHCR mailed a copy of the application to the tenant.

            Thereafter, an inspection of the subject apartment was conducted on 
            November 19, 1990 by a DHCR staff member who found the continued 
            existence of defective conditions.
             
            By an order dated December 11, 1990, the Administrator denied the 
            owner's application, finding roach infestation in the apartment and 
            bulging in the bathroom ceiling above the tub.

            In this petition, the owner contends in substance that there is 
            regular exterminating and that the bulging was repaired. 

            DHCR mailed a copy of the petition to the tenant.


            FB210099RO


            After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
            the petition should be denied.







            Pursuant to Section 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code, DHCR is 
            authorized to order a rent reduction, upon application by a tenant, 
            where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain required 
            services. The owner's petition does not establish any basis to 
            modify or revoke the Administrator's determination based on the 
            November 19, 1990 inspection which confirmed the continued existence 
            of defective conditions, warranting a denial of the owner's rent 
            restoration application.
             
            The owner may file another rent restoration application if the facts 
            so warrant.

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
            and Operational Bulletin 84-1, 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
