             ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          On August 15, 1991, the above-named owner filed a  timely  petition
          for administrative review of an  order  issued  on  July  23,  1991
          concerning t e  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.

          The tenant commenced this proceeding on November 6, 1989 by  filing
          a complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain 
          services in the subject apartment.

          In its answer filed on December 6, 1989, the  owner  asserted  that
          all required repairs had been and would be completed.

          Thereafter on July 3, 1991, the subject apartment was inspected  by
          D.H.C.R. which confirmed the existence of defective conditions.

          The Administrator directed on July 23, 1991  restoration  of  these
          services and further ordered a reduction of the stabilized rent.

          In this petition, the owner contends in substance that repairs  had
          been performed.

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

          It is unclear whether the owner contends that repairs had been made 
          before the apartment was inspected or  the  order  was  issued,  or
          whether the owner contends that repairs  were  made  following  the
          issuance of the Administrator's order.  If it is the  former,  then
          the owner's allegation is  belied  by  the  report  of  the  agency
          inspector.  If it is the latter,  then  the  Administrator's  order
          reducing the rent was nevertheless correct when  issued,  and  this






          Docket Number: FH 610122-RO

          order  is  issued  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
