            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for  administrative
          review of an order issued concerning  the  housing  accommodation
          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 below by filing  an  applica-
          tion asserting that it had restored and was  maintaining  certain
          services in the subject building, to wit - adequate heat.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector who found that heat was inadequate.      

          The Rent Administrator found no restoration of this  service  and
          further ordered, a denial of the owner's rent restoration appli-
          cation.

          In her petition for administrative review, the owner  states,  in
          substance, that on the date in  question  the  boiler  was  being
          serviced and had been shut down for this purpose.

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



          The Commissioner notes that the  owner's  allegation  is  totally
          unsubstantiated by any corroborating evidence.   Accordingly  the
          Commissioner finds that the owner has offered insufficient reason 
          to disturb the Rent Administrator's order.

          The  Rent  Administrator's  order  denying  the  application  was
          correct when issued, and this Order is issued  without  prejudice
          to  the  owner's  rights  as  they  may  pertain  to  a  de  novo






          GA 120141 RO
          application for a rent restoration  based  on  a  restoration  of
          services.


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

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  denied,
          and the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Acting Deputy Commissioner
