            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named owner filed a timely Petition  for  Administrative
          Review of an order issued on May 30, 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  February  13,  1991  by
          filing a complaint asserting that the  owner  failed  to  maintain
          certain services in the subject apartment.

          In his answer filed on  March  20,  1991,  the  owner  denied  the
          allegations set forth in  the  tenant's  complaint  and  otherwise
          asserted that services are being provided.

          Thereafter on May 1, 1991, the subject apartment was inspected  by
          DHCR which confirmed the existence of defective conditions.

          The Administrator directed on May 30, 1991  restoration  of  these
          services and reduction of the stabilized rent.

          In this petition,  the  owner  contends  in  substance  that  "all
          deficiencies in services have been promptly corrected."

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

          The owner's petition is not clear whether the owner contends  that
          repairs were made before inspection or the  order's  issuance,  or
          whether the owner  contends  that  repairs  were  made  after  the
          order's issuance.  If it is the former, the owner's allegation  is
          belied by the report of  the  agency  inspector.   If  it  is  the
          latter, the Administrator's order was correct when issued.

          This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice to the  owner's
          filing an application with DHCR for rent restoration based on  the
          restoration of services, if the facts so warrant.






          FH 510363 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 Administrator's order be, and  the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed.

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
