            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on January 24, 1990 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 in this petition. 

          The tenant commenced the proceeding on October 26, 1988 by filing 
          a complaint asserting that the owner failed to maintain certain 
          services in the subject apartment.

          In answer, the owner asserted in substance that the conditions were 
          inspected and would be repaired on November 28, 1988.

          Thereafter, a physical inspection of the subject apartment was 
          conducted on January 10,1990 by a DHCR staff member who confirmed 
          that there were slight stains by the living room on the ceiling; 
          and that the bathroom ceiling over the tub had leak damage, falling 
          plaster and paint, and a hole in the ceiling.

          By an order dated January 24, 1990, the Administrator directed the 
          restoration of services and ordered a reduction of the stabilized 
          rent.












          EB110366RO



          In the petition for administrative review, the owner contends in 
          substance that the repairs were corrected, and submits a copy of an 
          invoice dated December 7, 1988 and a copy of the check used in 
          payment.

          DHCR mailed a copy of the petition to the tenant.

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

          The petition does not establish any basis to revoke or modify the 
          Administrator's determination based on the January 10, 1990 
          inspection which confirmed the existence of defective conditions, 
          despite the alleged repairs. The copies of the invoice and the 
          check used in payment are submitted for the first time on appeal 
          and were not established in the proceeding before the issuance of 
          the Adminstrator's order.

          Accordingly, the order appealed from was in all respects proper and 
          is hereby sustained.

          The status of the owner's rent restoration applications is as 
          follows: EC110047OR denied on October 15, 1990 and EK110148OR 
          granted on May 22, 1991.

          The automatic stay of the retroactive rent abatement that resulted 
          by the filing of this petition is vacated upon issuance of this 
          Order and Opinion.  

          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
