           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 26, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition
        for administrative review of an order issued on  January  29,  1991,
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.

        The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record  and
        has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to  the
        issues raised by the petition.

        On November 19, 1990, the tenant commenced this proceeding by filing 
        a complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain  certain
        services in the subject apartment.

        On October  25,  1990,  the  owner  was  notified  of  the  tenant's
        complaint.  

        In its answer filed on November 31, 1990, the  owner  asserted  that
        all required repairs will be completed.

        Thereafter on  January  11,  1991,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector, who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On January 29, 1991, the Rent Administrator directed restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in substance that  "all  services
        have been restored."

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







          Docket Number: FB-210269-RO
        The owner's petition does not make clear whether it is  the  owner's
        contention that repairs had  been  made  before  the  apartment  was
        inspected or the order was issued,  or  whether  the  contention  is
        that  repairs  were  made  following  the  issuance  of   the   Rent
        Administrator's order.  If  it  is  the  former,  then  the  owner's
        allegation is belied by the report of the agency inspector.   If  it
        is the latter, then the Rent Administrator's order reducing the rent 
        was nevertheless 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
