           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On May 15, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition  for
        administrative review of an order issued April 11,  1991  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.

        On October 18, 1990, 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 November 23, 1990, the  owner  asserted  that
        all required repairs had been or will be completed.

        Thereafter on March 12, 1991, an inspection of the subject apartment 
        was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector who confirmed the existence of 
        defective conditions.

        The Administrator directed on April 11, 1991  restoration  of  these
        services and further ordered a reduction of the stabilization rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in  substance  that  all  repairs
        were completed May 10, 1991.

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

        The owner admit's that repairs were made following the  issuance  of
        the Administrator's order.  Thus the Administrator's order based  on
        the inspection was correct when issued, and this order is issued 






          Administrative Review Docket NO: FE-510157-RO

        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
