            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named owner, filed a 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.

          The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an  application  to
          restore the rent of the subject apartment based on its allegation 
          of restored services.

          In his answer, the tenant denied the allegations set forth in the 
          owner's application.

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

          The Rent Administrator found that no restoration of services  had
          occured and further denied the owner's application.

          In its petition for administrative review, the owner  states,  in
          substance, that repairs have been performed.

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


          The owner's petition does not make clear whether it is  the  own-
          er's contention that repairs had been made before the  order  was
          issued or whether the contention is that repairs were  made  fol-
          lowing the issuance of the Rent Administrator's order.  If it  is
          the former, the Commissioner notes that the owner has offered  no
          evidence to substantiate this contention.  If it is  the  latter,
          then the Rent Administrator's order denying the  application  was
          nevertheless correct when issued, and this order is issued  with-
          out prejudice to the owner's refiling a restoration  of  services

          application.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Evictions  Regulations
          for New York City, it is           

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


          ISSUED:


                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
