           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 9, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely Petition  for
        Administrative  Review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  18,  1991,
        concerning t e  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.

        On November 27, 1989,  the  tenant  commenced  this  proceeding   by
        filing a complaint that the owner had  failed  to  maintain  certain
        services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer filed on December 18, 1989, the  owner  asserted  that
        all required repairs have been performed.

        On  January  9,  1991,  the  tenant  affirmed  that  the  conditions
        complained of have not yet been resolved.

        Thereafter on March 7, 1991, an inspection of the subject  apartment
        was conducted by a DHCR inspector who  confirmed  the  existence  of
        defective conditions.

        On March 18, 1991, the Administrator directed restoration  of  these
        services and further ordered a reduction of the stabilization rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in  substance  that  all  repairs
        have been made.

        The Commissioner is of the opinion  that  this  petition  should  be
        denied.

        The owner's petition does not make clear whether it is  the  owner's
        contention that repairs had  been  made  before  the  apartment  was
        inspected or the order was issued, or whether the contention is that 
        repairs were made following the issuance of the Rent Administrator's 
        order.  If it is the former, then the owner's allegation is belied 






          Docket Number: FD-110043-RO
        by the report of the agency inspector.  If it is  the  latter,  then
        the Rent Administrator's order reducing the  rent  was  nevertheless
        correct when issued, and this order is issued without  prejudice  to
        the owner filing an application for restoration of services.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law  and  Code,
        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
