            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The representative of the tenants'  association  of  the  subject
          building filed a timely petition for administrative review of  an
          order issued concerning the building relating to t e  above  des-
          cribed docket number.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record  and
          has carefully considered that  portion  relevant  to  the  issues
          raised by the petition. 

          The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an  application  to
          restore rents asserting that it had restored and was  maintaining
          all services in the subject building.

          In their answer, the tenants denied the allegations set forth  in
          the owner's application or otherwise asserted that  all  required
          repairs had not be effectuated.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject building was conducted by 
          a Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) inspector  who
          confirmed the restoration and maintenance of services.

          The Rent Administrator found a restoration of servic s  and  fur-
          ther ordered, a restoration of the stabilized rents.

          In its petition for administrative review, the tenant '  associa-
          tion states, in substance, that service deficiencies exist in the 
          building.



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

          The tenants' petition does not make clear  whether  it  is  their
          contention that service deficiencies existed before the  building
          was inspected or the order was issued or whether  the  contention
          is that service deficiencies occurred following the  issuance  of






          FF 130688-RT
          the Rent Administrator's order.  If it is the  former,  then  the
          allegation is belied by the report of the agency  inspector.   If
          it is the latter, than the Rent Administrator's  order  restoring
          the rents was nevertheless correct when issued, and this order is 
          issued without prejudice to the tenants' rights  to  file  a  new
          application for rent reductions if the facts so warrant.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili 
          zation Law and Code and the Emergency Tenant  Protection  Act  of
          1974, it is,

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby  is,  denied,
          and the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:


           
                                                   ELLIOT SANDER
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
