            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  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 its answer, the owner on February 28, 1990, asserted that  all
          required repairs had been completed.        

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject apartment  was  conducted
          by a DHCR inspector who  confirmed  the  existence  of  defective
          conditions.

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

          In its petition for administrative review, the owner states, that 
          it did not receive the tenant's original  complaint  and  submits
          statements acknowledging repairs, allegedly signed by the tenant.



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

          The Commissioner notes that the owner's allegation  that  it  did
          not receive the tenant's complaint is belied by the fact that  it
          interposed an answer thereto during the original proceeding.  The 
          Commissioner further notes that t e  photocopied  signed  acknow-
          ledgements attached to the petition were  not  submitted  to  the






          FL 520369 RO
          Rent  Administrator  during  the  pendency  of  that  proceeding.
          Accordingly, they may not be considered now when  they  are  sub-
          mitted for the first time on administrative appeal.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent & Eviction Regulations for 
          New York City, 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
