                                   PETITIONER     612 W. 188th St., Apt. 22
          ----------------------------------x      New   York,   New   York
                                                                  
                                                            
            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named owner filed a timely petition for  administrative
          review of an order issued 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  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 denied the allegations set forth in  the
          tenant's complaint or otherwise asserted that  all  required  re-
          pairs had been or will be completed.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by 
          a Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) inspector  who
          confirmed the existence of defective conditions.

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

          In its petition for administrative review, the owner  states,  in
          substance, that repairs have been performed.



          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  own-
          er'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






          FK 510269-RO
          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 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:



                                                                           
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
