           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 4, 1991, the above-named  owner  filed  a  Petition  for
        Administrative Review  of  an  order  issued  on  January  16,  1991
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  

        On October 3, 1990, the tenant  commenced this proceeding  by filing 
        a complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain  certain
        services in the subject apartment.

        Although duly notified to do so  on  October  11,  1990,  the  owner
        failed to respond to the tenant's complaint.

        Thereafter on December  11,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by  a  DHCR  inspector,  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On January 16,  1991,  the  Administrator  directed  restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In this petition, the owner alleges inter alia  that  the  order  is
        "arbitrary and capricious and must be reversed."

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

        Despite  the  owner's  assertions,  inspection  disclosed  that  the
        complained-of conditions existed and, the  Commissioner  finds  that
        the rent reduction is warranted.

        This order is issued without prejudice to the owner's right to  file
        the appropriate application for restoration  of  the  rent,  if  the
        facts so warrant.

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







          Docket Number: FB-210017-RO


        ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review  be,  and  the
        same  hereby  is,  denied,  and,  that  the  order   of   the   Rent
        Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
