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

        On February 14, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition
        for administrative review of an order issued  on  January  11,  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 October 4, 1990, 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 dated October 29, 1990, the owner  asserted  that  all
        required repairs had been completed.

        Thereafter on December  26,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted  by  a  DHCR  inspector  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On January 11, 1991, the Rent Administrator directed restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  states,  in
        substance, that repairs have been performed.

        After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
        the petition should be denied.

        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.







        Docket Number: FB-410126-RO
        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
