           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        The above-named owner filed a  timely  petition  for  administrative
        review of an order  issued  on  October  16,  1990,  concerning  the
        housing  accommodations  relating  to  the  above-described   docket
        number.  

        This administrative appeal  is  being  determined  pursuant  to  the
        provisions of 9 NYCRR 2520.6(r) and 9 NYCRR 2523.4.

        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.

        The original proceeding was commenced on May 4, 1990 by  the  tenant
        filing a complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain
        certain services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer filed on May 23, 1990, the  owner  denied  the  allega
        tions set forth in the tenant's  complaint  and  otherwise  asserted
        that required repairs had been performed and will be completed.

        Thereafter on July 16, 1990, the subject apartment was inspected  by
        a D.H.C.R. inspector which  confirmed  the  existence  of  defective
        conditions.

        The Administrator directed on October 16, 1990 restoration of  these
        services and further ordered reduction of the stabilized rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in substance  that  the  required
        repairs had 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 it is  the  owner's
        contention that repairs had  been  made  before  the  apartment  was
        inspected or the order was issued, or whether the contention is that 
        repairs were made following  the  issuance  of  the  Administrator's
        order.  If it is the former, then the owner's allegation  is  belied






          Docket Number: FE 110222-RO

        by the report of the agency inspector.  If it is  the  latter,  then
        the 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
