               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of an order issued on October 4, 1990 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 owner commenced this proceeding by filing an application to 
            restore rent based on the restoration of services in the subject 
            apartment.

            In answer, the tenant denied the allegations and otherwise asserted 
            that repairs were not done.

            On September 18, 1990, an inspection of the subject apartment was 
            conducted by a DHCR staff member who confirmed the continued 
            existence of defective conditions.

            By an order dated October 4, 1990, the Administrator directed the 
            restoration of services and ordered a rent reduction.

            In this petition, the owner contends in substance that all work was 
            done prior to inspection.

            In answer, the tenant stated that the repairs were ineffective and 
            done in an unworkmanlike manner.


            EK210060RO


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







            Pursuant to Section 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code, DHCR is 
            authorized to order a rent reduction, upon application by a tenant, 
            where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain required 
            services. The owner's petition does not establish any basis to 
            modify or revoke the Administrator's determination based on the 
            September 18, 1990 inspection which confirmed the continued 
            existence of defective conditions, warranting a denial of the 
            owner's application. 

            The status of the owner's rent restoration applications is as 
            follows: CB210056OR denied on October 18, 1988, CL210122OR denied on 
            July 26, 1989, EF220090OR denied on May 21, 1991 and FG210015OR 
            granted on August 5, 1992.

            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, denied, and 
            that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.



            ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
