               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of an order issued on October 20, 1993 by the Rent 
            Administrator  granting the owner's application to restore rent 
            based on the restoration of services.

            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 December 4, 1991 by filing an 
            application to restore rent based on the restoration of services for 
            which a rent reduction order was issued on April 29, 1987 under 
            Docket No. ZAG510398S.

            The Commissioner notes that other services cited in the rent 
            reduction order ZAG510398S were found to have been restored by the 
            Administrator's determinations under Docket Nos. ZBL410008OR issued 
            on June 23, 1988 and ZFC510175OR issued on August 5, 1991. The only 
            remaining defective conditions at issue in this proceeding were the 
            peeling paint and plaster on the kitchen walls and ceiling, the 
            bedroom ceiling and walls, the hall ceiling and the living room 
            ceiling.

            In answer, the tenant denied the allegations and otherwise asserted 
            in substance that defective conditions continue to exist.

            On March 4, 1993, an inspection of the subject apartment was 
            conducted by a DHCR staff member who found no evidence of peeling 

            HK510108RT


            paint and plaster on the kitchen walls and ceiling, living room 
            ceiling, hallway ceiling or the bedroom walls or ceiling.







            The Commissioner notes that the March 4, 1993 inspection cited new 
            defective conditions in the bathroom, which are not at issue in this 
            rent restoration proceeding.

            By an order dated October 20, 1993, the Administrator granted the 
            owner's application to restore rent.

            In this petition, the tenant contends in substance that defective 
            conditions continue to exist.

            DHCR mailed a copy of the petition to the owner.

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

            The tenant's petition does not establish any basis to modify or 
            revoke the Administrator's determination based on the March 4, 1993 
            inspection and previous findings under Docket Nos. ZBL410008OR and 
            ZFC510175OR, which in totality verified the restoration of services.

            THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
            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
