             ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on September 29, 1988 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 on November 6, 1987 by filing 
          a complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain 
          services in the subject apartment.

          On December 29, 1987, DHCR mailed a copy of the complaint to the 
          owner.

          In an answer dated January 14, 1988, the owner asserted in substance 
          that the conditions were being corrected.

          Thereafter, an inspection of the subject apartment was conducted on 
          August 30, 1988 by a DHCR staff member who confirmed the existence 
          of defective conditions.

          By an order dated September 29, 1988, the Administrator directed the 
          restoration of services and ordered the reduction of the stabilized 
          rent.

          In the petition for administrative review, the owner contends in 
          substance that it was not aware of the tenant's complaint and that 
          the tenant refused access.

          In answer, the tenant denied the allegations in the petition and 
          otherwise asserted that the conditions continue to exist.












          ED120396RO


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

          petition. The instant petition raises new facts or evidence that 
          were not before the Administrator or otherwise fails to raise any 
          issue regarding the correctness of the order being appealed from.

          The Commissioner finds that the petition must therefore be dismissed 
          for failure to state a cause of action.

          The owner's rent restoration application (FB110069OR) was granted on 
          July 17, 1991.

          The automatic stay of the retroactive rent reduction 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 
          and Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, dismissed.


          ISSUED:

                                                                       
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
