           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 15, 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 October 4, 1989, 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 December 21, 1989, the  owner  asserted  that
        "work order (had been) issued."

        Thereafter on November 26, 1990, November  30,  1990  and  March  7,
        1991,  inspections  of  the  subject  housing   accommodation   were
        conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector who  confirmed  the  existence  of
        defective conditions.

        On March 18, 1991, the Administrator issued an order based  on  said
        inspections directing restoration  of  these  services  and  further
        ordering a reduction of the stabilization rent.

        In this petition, the owner contends that  all  services  are  being
        maintained and defective conditions removed.

        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 before 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 by the report of the agency inspector.  If it 







        Docket Number: FD-110169-RO

        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
