           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 12, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  5,   1991,
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  

        This administrative appeal  is  being  determined  pursuant  to  the
        provisions of 2520.6(r) and 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code.

        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 administrative appeal.

        On April 18, 1990, the tenant commenced this proceeding by filing  a
        complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain 
        services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer filed  on  August  15,  1990,  the  owner  denied  the
        tenant's complaint or otherwise asserted that all  required  repairs
        would be completed.

        Thereafter on August 8, 1990, February 19,  1991  and  February  25,
        1991, inspections of the  subject  apartment  were  conducted  by  a
        D.H.C.R.  inspector  who  confirmed  the  existence   of   defective
        conditions.

        On March 5, 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  repairs  had
        been performed.

        Although the owner contends that repairs were effectuated  prior  to
        the issuance of the Administrator's order,  the  Commissioner  notes
        that the owner submitted no evidence to substantiate the  contention
        either while the proceeding was pending before the Administrator  or
        by attachment to its petition.







          Docket Number: FD-110147-RO

        The  record  clearly  shows  that  inspections  before  the  order's
        issuance   reported   the   existence   of   defective   conditions.
        Accordingly, based on a preponderance of the evidence, the owner has 
        offered insufficient reason to disturb  the  Administrator's  order,
        and it should be affirmed.

        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
