          ----------------------------------X                           
            
            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named owner filed a timely Petition  for  Administrative
          Review of an order issued on June 10, 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 issues raised by the petition.

          The tenant commenced this proceeding on October 17, 1990 by filing 
          a complaint asserting that the owner failed  to  maintain  certain
          services in the subject apartment.

          Although duly notified to do so on October  25,  1990,  the  owner
          failed to respond to the tenant's complaint.

          Thereafter on April 19, 1991, the subject apartment was  inspected
          by DHCR  which  confirmed  the  existence  of  numerous  defective
          conditions.

          The Administrator directed on June 10, 1991 restoration  of  these
          services and reduction of the stabilized rent.

          In this petition, the owner contends in  substance  that  services
          had been restored after the Administrator's order was  issued,  as
          indicated by the tenant's sworn statement on August 6, 1991.

          The owner admits that services had been restored subsequent to the 
          issuance  of  the   Administrator's   order.    Accordingly,   the
          Administrator's order based on the  inspection  finding  decreased
          services was correct when issued.

          This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice to the owner's 






          FH 410364 RO

          filing an application with DHCR for rent restoration based on  the
          restoration of services, if the facts so warrant.


          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 Administrator's order be, and  the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed.

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
