  ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                             IN PART
                                
The  above-named owner timely refiled a petition for  administra-
tive   review   of  an  order  issued  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
asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain  services
in the subject apartment.

In  his answer, the owner denied the allegations set forth in the
tenant's  complaint or otherwise asserted that all  required  re-
pairs had been or would be completed.

Thereafter  an inspection of the subject apartment was  conducted
by  the  DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of  defective
conditions - to wit defective window locks.

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  repairs have been performed.  Attached  to  the
owner's  petition  is a copy of the repair bill  for  the  window
locks  and  the signed statement of the tenant acknowledging  the
effectuation of repairs on November 7, 1990.

After  careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the  opinion
that the petition should be granted in part.

The  Commissioner  notes that repairs are alleged  to  have  been
effectuated  on November 7, 1990 after the issuance of  the  Rent
Administration's  order.  Hence the Rent  Administration's  order
was correct when issued.

Since  the parties both agree that repairs have now been  effect-
uated  and  service is restored the Commissioner finds that  rent
should   be  restored effective December 1, 1991 the  first  rent
payment date subsequent to the owner's submission of the tenant's
statement and repair bill to this Division.


THEREFORE,  in  accordance with the Rent  Stabilization  Law  and
Code, it is

ORDERED,  that this petition be, and the same hereby is,  granted
in  part and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same
hereby is, modified to the extent of restoring the rent effective
December 1, 1991. In all other respects the Rent Administration's
order is affirmed.


ISSUED:





JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA        Acting Deputy
                                   Commissioner
