            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations relating to the above described docket number.

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

               The tenant commenced the proceeding below by filing a 
          complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain 
          services in the subject apartment.

               On July 15, 1992, a Notice of Inspection was sent to the 
          tenant requesting access to the subject premises on July 22, 1992.

               The inspection report discloses that the Agency inspector did 
          not gain access at the appointment date and time from the tenant.

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: GH420188RT

               On July 22, 1992, the inspector left notice for the tenants, 
          at the subject premises, again requesting access to the subject 
          apartment, on July 24, 1992.

               The inspection report discloses that the Agency inspector, 
          again did not gain access at the appointment date and time from the 
          tenant. 

               On August 7, 1992, the Rent Administrator issued an order 
          based on the inspection report, denying the tenant's application
          and terminating the proceeding.

               In her petition the tenant contends that, no inspector visited 
          her apartment and that all repairs have been made.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be 
          denied.

               The tenant's naked allegation that the inspector had not 
          visited the subject premises is unsubstantiated and is contrary to 
          the report by an agency inspector.

               Moreover, the complaint filed by the tenant is moot by her own
          admission that the repairs were perfected.

               This order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's right 
          to file a new complaint, if the facts so warrant,being mindful of 
          the need to make the apartment available for inspection. 

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction 
          Regulations of New York City, it is

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

          ISSUED:


                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
