            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 of the evidence in  the  record
          and has carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant
          to the issues raised by the petition for review.

          The tenant  commenced  this  proceeding  by  filing  a  complaint
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain  services
          in the subject premises - to wit, damage to bathroom floor tiles; 
          bathroom floor is raised in several placed.

          In its answer, the owner claimed  that  tenant  didn't  want  the
          bathroom floor repaired, but instead wanted a new bathroom  floor
          installed, and thus refused  to  allow  the  owner  to  make  the
          repairs.

          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, that 
          repairs have been performed.


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

          An examination of the record reveals  that  the  owner  performed
          repairs to the bathroom floor after  the  issuance  date  of  the
          Administrator's Order.   Thus,  the  Rent  Administrator's  Order
          finding a reduction of services was correct when issued and  this
          order is issued without prejudice to the owner filing a  restora-
          tion of services application.







          EH 210128-RO 


          THEREFORE, in accordance with  the  Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
          Code, and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  denied,
          and that the District Rent Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, affirmed.


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
