            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   



          The above-named owner filed a timely Petition for  Administrative
          Review of an order concerning the housing accommodation  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 by fili g  a  complaint  as-
          serting that the owner had failed to maintain certain services in 
          the subject apartment.   

          In its answer, the owner asserted th t  painting  had  been  com-
          pleted.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of defective  condi-
          tions.

          The Rent Administrator directed restoration of these services and 
          further ordered, a reduction of the stabilization rent.



          In his petition for administrative review, the owner  states,  in
          substance, that the tenant has not allowed access  o  the  apart-
          ment.

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

          The owner's petition does  not  make  clear  whether  it  is  the






          FK 110137-RO
          owner's  contention  that  repairs  had  been  made  before   the
          apartment was inspected or the order was issued  or  whether  the
          contention is that repairs were made following  the  issuance  of
          the Rent 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  Rent  Administrator's
          order reducing the rent was  nevertheless  correct  when  issued,
          and this order is issued without prejudice to the owner filing  a
          restoration of services application.


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


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Acting Deputy Commissioner
