           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On January 15, 1991, the above-named owner filed a  timely  petition
        for administrative review of an order issued on  December  12,  1990
        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
        issue raised by the petition.

        On August 3, 1990, the owner commenced this proceeding by filing  an
        application to restore rent based on the restoration of services. 
        Although the tenants were informed to do so, the tenants  failed  to
        respond to the owner's application.

        Thereafter on  November  9,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector  who  confirmed  the
        continued existence of some  defective  conditions,  i.e.  that  the
        "[p]ublic areas are dirty" and  the  "[b]uilding  entrance  door  is
        missing at 152."  However, the inspection report stated  that  there
        is "[n]o evidence of rodent infestation in  public  areas"  and  "of
        garbage accumulation in courtyard."

        The Administrator granted in part on December 12, 1990  the  owner's
        application, restoring the legal regulated rent  in  the  amount  of
        $9.00 per month.

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

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

        The owner's petition does not make clear whether the owner  contends
        that repairs on the remaining defective  conditions  had  been  made
        before the apartment was inspected  or  the  order  was  issued,  or
        whether the owner contends that  repairs  were  made  following  the
        issuance of the Administrator's order. 






          Docket Number: FA 630368-RO


        If it is the former, then the owner's allegation is  belied  by  the
        report of the agency inspector.  If  it  is  the  latter,  then  the
        Administrator's order was nevertheless correct when issued.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations,  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
