           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 1, 1991, the above-named  owner  filed  a  Petition  for
        Administrative Review  of  an  order  issued  on  January  8,  1991,
        concerning t e  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 of  the  record  relevant  to  the
        issues raised by the petition.

        On May 10, 1990, the owner filed an application to restore  services
        based on restoration of services for which a  rent  reduction  order
        was issued on April 7, 1990 under Docket Number ZDH-110513-S.

        On November 30, 1990  and  December  5,  1990,  inspections  of  the
        subject  housing  accommodation  were  conducted   by   DHCR.    The
        inspector's report confirmed that services have not been restored.

        On January 8, 1991, the Administrator issued an order based  on  the
        inspection report finding that the "refrigerator/freezer temperature 
        is inadequate"  and  that  "the  bathroom  wall  tiles  are  uneven,
        cracked, broken and in need of grouting."

        In this petition, the owner contends  that  after  issuance  of  the
        order, on January 11, 1991 and January 17,  1991,  it  attempted  to
        schedule repairs in the subject housing accommodation but the tenant 
        said that "no more repairs need to be done."

        The Commissioner is of the opinion  that  this  petition  should  be
        denied.

        Despite the owner's assertions, the record shows that an  inspection
        of the subject premises was made prior to the issuance of the order; 
        and that  the  inspector  reported  the  services  in  question  not
        restored.







          DOCKET NUMBER:  EJ-610039-RO

        The Commissioner notes that the owner's attempt to  schedule  repair
        appointments after the issuance of the order does  not  disturb  the
        validity of  the  Administrator's  order  based  on  the  inspection
        report in the proceedings below.

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

        ORDERED, that the owner's petition  be,  and  the  same  hereby  is,
        denied, and that the District Rent Administrator's order be, and the 
        same hereby is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
