           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On June 6, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition  for
        administrative review of an order issued on May 22, 1991, concerning 
        the 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 administrative appeal.

        This proceeding was commenced on  March  6,  1990  when  the  tenant
        filed a complaint asserting that the owner had  failed  to  maintain
        certain services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer  filed  on  April  30,  1990,  the  owner  denied  the
        allegations set  forth  in  the  tenant's  complaint  and  otherwise
        asserted that all required repairs had been performed.

        Thereafter on April 16, 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 May  22,  1991  restoration  of  these
        services and further ordered a reduction of the stabilized rent.

        In this petition, the owner states inter alia that repairs had  been
        performed as indicated by a April 2, 1990  inspection  under  Docket
        No. ZAK-110138-S.

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

        It is noted that the alleged repairs belong to another Docket Number 
        in  the  Compliance  Unit,  which  is  irrelevant  to  this  current
        petition; that the  Administrator's  order  is  based  on  a  recent
        inspection finding  decreased  services  and  thus  warranting  rent
        reduction; and that the owner had thirteen months from  the  service
        of the tenant's complaint to the issuance of the order appealed from 
        to investigate the tenant's complaint  and  to  make  the  necessary
        repairs, but the owner failed to do so.







          Docket Number: FF 110046-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
