               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of an order issued on February 5, 1991 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 by filing an application to 
            restore rent based on the restoration of services.

            DHCR mailed a copy of the application to the tenant.

            On January 9, 1991, a physical inspection of the subject apartment 
            was conducted by a DHCR staff member who reported that the kitchen 
            vent is inoperative; that the kitchen cabinet door (over sink) does 
            not close properly; and that the bathroom vent is inoperative.

            By an order dated February 5, 1991, the Administrator denied the 
            owner's application.

            In this petition, the owner contends in substance that all the fans 
            are in proper working order, as indicated by an attached copy of a 
            letter from an air conditioning company dated January 30, 1992.

            In answer, the tenant stated in pertinent part that services are not 
            yet restored.

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

            The owner's petition does not establish any basis to modify or 
            revoke the Administrator's determination based on the January 9, 
            1991 inspection which confirmed the continued existence of defective 
            conditions, warranting a denial of the owner's application. 

            FC210076RO








            The owner's submission of a January 30, 1992 letter from an air 
            conditioning company is beyond the scope of review, which is limited 
            to the issues and evidence before the Administrator.

            The Commissioner notes that the owner's rent restoration application 
            (GC210046OR) was granted on July 28, 1993.

            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
