           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 25, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  Petition
        for Administrative Review of an order issued on  January  17,  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 September 21, 1989, the tenant   commenced  this  proceeding   by
        filing a complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain
        certain services in the subject apartment.

        On November 20, 1989, the owner denied the allegations set forth  in
        the tenant's complaint  or  otherwise  asserted  that  all  required
        repairs had been completed.

        Thereafter on September 20,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted  by  a  DHCR  inspector  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On January 17,  1991,  the  Administrator  directed  restoration  of
        these services and further  ordered a reduction of the stabilization 
        rent.

        In this petition, the owner contends in substance that repairs  have
        been performed and required services maintained.

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

        Firstly,  inspection   clearly   disclosed   defective   conditions,
        warranting rent reduction.

        Secondly, the owner states in its petition that as  of  January  24,
        1991 and February 19, 1991, all repairs  have  been  performed.   In
        other words, repairs were made following the issuance of the 






          Docket Number: FB-210254-RO
        Administrator's  order.   Accordingly,  the  Administrator's   order
        reducing the rent was correct when issued, and this order is  issued
        without prejudice to the owner filing an application for restoration 
        of services.

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