            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

          On April 20, 1988, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on 
          March 15, 1988, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodation known as 4501 Broadway, Apartment 5-H, New York, 
          New York, wherein the Administrator directed a restoration of 
          services and further ordered a reduction in the rent-stabilized 
          rent.

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

          This proceeding was commenced by the tenant's filing of a complaint 
          on May 18, 1987 of decrease in apartment services.  An inspection 
          conducted by an employee of the Division on January 4, 1988 
          confirmed some of the complained of conditions resulting in the 
          March 15, 1988 order.  

          In the PAR, the owner requests the order be revoked contending that 
          it never received a copy of the tenant's complaint; that repairs 
          indicated on the order have been completed; and that a stipulation 
          entered in court supersedes any pending decision of this agency.  

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

          The record reflects that the tenant's complaint was served on the 
          owner herein on October 9, 1987.  Owner makes no representation 
          that the repairs he refers to were completed before the order was 
          issued and the record does not indicate that the owner offered 
          evidence to substantiate before the Rent Administrator the 
          allegation that the conditions were corrected.  Lastly, although 
          the owner refers to a stipulation attached to the PAR, the document 
          was not included in the owner's submission and cannot be considered 
          here.

          Accordingly, the owner has offered insufficient reason to disturb 
          the Rent Administrator's order.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          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
