           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 24, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  19,  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 7, 1990, the owner commenced this proceeding  by  filing
        an application to restore rent  based  on  the  restoration  of  all
        services.

        In its answer filed on December 13, 1990, the  owner  asserted  that
        the tenant refused access for repairs.

        Thereafter on February 26, 1991 and February 27,  1991,  inspections
        of the subject apartment were conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector  who
        confirmed the existence of defective conditions.

        The Rent Administrator directed on March  19,  1991  restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  states,  in
        substance, that the tenant refused access for repairs.

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

        Although the owner alleges in  this  petition  and  below  that  the
        tenant refused access, the owner failed to submit to DHCR copies  of
        two letters  to  the  tenant  attempting  to  arrange  access  dates
        pursuant to Policy Statement  (90-5)  "Arranging  Repairs/No  Access
        Inspections."


        The owner thus failed to rebut the December 26,  1991  and  December
        27, 1991 inspection  finding  decreased  services,  warranting  rent
        reduction.








        Docket Number: FD-110254-RO
        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
