           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 17, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely Petition for 
        Administrative  Review  of  an  order  issued  on  April  1,   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 March 28, 1990, the owner commenced this proceeding by filing  an
        application for rent restoration based on  restoration  of  services
        and tenant's consent to same.

        Thereafter on November 13, 1990 and November 23, 1990, an inspection 
        of the subject apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R.  inspector  who
        confirmed that services have not been restored.

        On April 1, 1991, the Administrator issued an order  based  on  said
        inspection, denying the owner's  request  and  continuing  the  rent
        reduction in effect.

        In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  states,  in
        substance, that repairs have been performed after the November  1990
        inspection and prior to the issuance of the Administrator's order.

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

        Although the owner contends that repairs were effectuated  prior  to
        the issuance of the Administrator's order,  the  Commissioner  notes
        that the owner submitted insufficient evidence to  substantiate  the
        contention either  while  the  proceeding  was  pending  before  the
        Administrator or by attachment to this petition.  Accordingly, based 
        on  a  preponderance  of  the  evidence  the   owner   has   offered
        insufficient reason to disturb the Administrator's  order  based  on
        the November 1990 inspection, and it should be affirmed.







          Docket Number: FD-510172-RO

        This Order and Opinion is issued  without  prejudice  to  the  owner
        filing another application for restoration of services if the  facts
        so warrant.

        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
