               ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

            The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative 
            review of an order issued by the Administrator 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 answer, the tenant denied the allegations in the application and 
            otherwise asserted that defective conditions continue to exist.

            On October 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 November 1, 1990, the Administrator denied the 
            owner's application.

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

            DHCR mailed a copy of the petition to the tenant.

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





            EK210316RO









            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 
            October 18, 1990 inspection which confirmed the continued existence 
            of defective conditions, warranting a denial of the application. 

            The owner may file another rent restoration application if the facts 
            so warrant.

            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
