             ANDY ANDERSON c/o                 DISTRICT RENT ADMIN.     
             600 E. 21st STREET,            :  DOCKET NO.: ZDH 210174-S  

                              PETITIONER    : 
        ------------------------------------X                           
          
           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 22, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  Petition
        for Administrative Review of an order issued  on  February  4,  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 August 7, 1989, 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 filed on September 19, 1989, the  owner  claimed  that
        the tenant denied access.

        Thereafter on December 28, 1990 and  January  7,  1991,  inspections
        were conducted by a DHCR inspector who confirmed  the  existence  of
        defective conditions.

        On February 4,  1991,  the  Administrator  directed  restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in  substance  that  repairs  had
        been completed prior to the issuance of  the  Administrator's  order
        when the tenant provided access.

        Although the owner contends that repairs were effectuated  prior  to
        the issuance of the Administrator's order,  the  Commissioner  notes
        that the owner submitted no evidence to substantiate the  contention
        either while the proceeding was pending before the Administrator  or
        by  attachment  to  his   petition.    Accordingly,   based   on   a
        preponderance of the evidence the  owner  has  offered  insufficient
        reason to disturb  the  Administrator's  order,  and  it  should  be
        affirmed.




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






          Docket Number: FB-210247-RO
        it is

        ORDERED, that this 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
