            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW IN 
                         PART AND MODIFYING ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of two orders under Docket Nos. EE420023OR and EE420024OR
            issued on the same day of January 17, 1991 concerning the housing 
            accommodations relating to the above-described docket number, 
            wherein the Administrator granted partially the owner's rent 
            restoration applications.  

            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.

            A search of the record reveals that the subject apartment is rent- 
            controlled, a fact undisputed by the parties.

            The Administrator's order under Docket No. EE420023OR states that an 
            inspection held on December 28, 1990 revealed, in relevant part, 
            "evidence of peeling paint and plaster to living room walls         
             and ceiling." The order further states that the owner may refile   
            for the remaining $3.00 when all services are fully restored.

            The Administrator's order under Docket No. EE420024OR states that an 
            inspection held on December 28, 1990 revealed, in relevant part, 
            "evidence of peeling paint and plaster on living room walls and 
            ceiling with falling plaster"; and that the owner may refile for the 
            remaining $10.00 when all services are fully restored.


            FB410058RO

            In the petition for administrative review, the owner questions the 
            statement in the Administrator's order under Docket No.EE420023OR 
            that the "owner may refile for the remaining $3.00" when the peeling 
            paint and plaster to the living room walls and ceiling is corrected, 






            when another order (EE420024OR) issued on the same day based on the 
            same December 28, 1990 inspection states that the "owner may refile 
            for the remaining $10.00" for the same defective conditions.

            The Commissioner finds that as to the peeling paint and plaster to 
            the living room walls and ceiling, the Administrator's order under 
            Docket No. EE420024OR is duplicative and moot. The reference to 
            owner refiling for the remaining $10.00 is therefore deleted.

            Accordingly, the Administrator's order under Docket No. EE420023OR 
            is correct. The owner may refile for the remaining $3.00 when the 
            peeling paint and plaster to living room walls and ceiling is 
            removed.

            Thus, the owner's petition is granted in part and the
            Administrator's order under Docket No. EE420024OR modified in 
            accordance with this Order and Opinion.

            The owner may apply for another rent restoration application if the 
            facts so warrant.

            Rent arrears may be due the owner from the tenant as a result of 
            this Order and Opinion. Any arrears shall be paid in monthly 
            installments which shall not exceed the amount of the monthly rent 
            reductions revoked herein.  

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations and 
            Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

            ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted in 
            part, and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, 
            modified in accordaance with this Order and Opinion.



            ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
