            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  accommodations
          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  tenant  commenced  this  proceeding  by  filing  a  complaint
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain  certain  services
          in the subject premises.

          In its answer, the owner stated that some of the services had been 
          restored.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted  by
          a D.H.C.R. inspector who confirmed the existence of one  defective
          condition (broken dishwasher).

          The Rent Administrator directed restoration of these services  and
          further ordered a reduction of the regulated rent.

          In its petition for administrative review, the owner states,  that
          it had purchased a new dishwasher for the tenant.   Enclosed  with
          the petition was a copy of an invoice from an appliance dealer for 
          the purchase, by the owner of a dishwasher and invoice dated after 
          the issue date of the Administrator's Order.

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

          Despite the owner's assertions,  the  physical  inspection  report
          disclosed  the  complained  of   conditions   existed   and,   the
          Commissioner finds that the rent reduction  is  warranted.   Owner
          stipulates to the fact that repairs were not made until after  the
          Administrator's Order was issued.

          The Commissioner notes that on May 13, 1990  the  owner  filed  an
          Application for Rent Restoration with the Administrator, and  that






          EE 110415 RO

          this Application was granted on December 11, 1990 under Docket# 
          EE 110144-OR.

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

          ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and  the
          same  hereby  is,  denied,  and,  that  the  order  of  the   Rent
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
