              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 filing 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 repairs 
            had been or will be completed.

            Thereafter an inspection of the subject apartment was conducted by 
            a D.H.C.R. 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.















          FL 210078-RO

            In its petition for administrative review, the owner states, in 
            substance, that repairs have been performed, and attaches a work 
            order alleged to have been signed by the tenant on October 21, 
            1991.

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

            It is the owner's contention that repairs had been made on October 
            21, 1991 before the apartment was inspected on November 22, 1991.  
            Since the signed work order was not submitted to the Rent 
            Administrator, pursuant to Section 2529.6 of the Rent Stabilization 
            Code, it may not be considered herein when offered for the first 
            time on administrative appeal.  It is further noted that the 
            owner's allegation is belied by the report of the agency inspector.  
            The Rent Administrator's order reducing the rent was 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
