           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On February 25, 1991, the above-named owner  filed  a  Petition  for
        Administrative Review of  an  order  issued  on  January  18,  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 June 25, 1990, the tenant  commenced this proceeding   by  filing
        complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain  certain
        services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer filed on July 13, 1990, the owner  asserted  that  all
        required repairs had been completed.

        Thereafter on  November  9,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by  a  DHCR  inspector,  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On January 18,  1991,  the  Administrator  directed  restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In this petition, the owner alleges in substance  that  repairs  had
        been performed on January 10, 1990.

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

        The Commissioner notes that the owner's allegation of repairs  being
        made on January 10, 1990 is without bearing to  this  case,  wherein
        the tenant complained on June 25, 1990 and inspection  conducted  on
        November 9, 1990.









          Docket Number: FB-520259-RO
        Even if 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.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction Regulations,  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
