            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 asserted that repairs were being made.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted  by
          a D.H.C.R. inspector who  confirmed  the  existence  of  defective
          conditions.

          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,  in
          substance, that repairs have  been  performed.   To  document  its
          assertions, owner includes with its petition a signed  work  order
          from the tenant, said work order indicating that repairs have been 
          performed.  Owner also stated that tenant was rent-stabilized.

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

          The owner did not serve the work  order  upon  the  Administrator,
          although it had an opportunity to do so.  Having  thus  failed  to
          notify the Administrator below that tenant  agreed  that  services
          were restored, the owner cannot  do  so  for  the  first  time  on
          appeal.  Moreover, the physical inspection report  disclosed  that
          the complained of conditions existed. 

          As for owner's contention that the tenant is  rent-stabilized,  an
          Amended Order was issued on June 21, 1990 recognizing this fact.






          EE 110419 RO


          This order is issued without prejudice to the  owner's  filing  an
          application for rent restoration, if the facts so warrant.

          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 by  the  tenant
          as a result of the Administrator's Order.

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
