                                         :  
        S.Y. WESTCHESTER REALTY CORP.,      DISTRICT RENT ADMIN.

                           PETITIONER    : 
     ------------------------------------X                           
       
           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 February 14,  1991  concerning
     the housing accommodations relating to the above-described docket  number.

     This administrative appeal is being determined pursuant to the  provisions
     of 2520.6(r) and 2523.4.

     The issue herein is whether conditions upon  which  an  order  was  issued
     reducing the rent have been corrected, warranting a reduction of the legal 
     regulated rent.

     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 11, 1990, the owner filed  an  application  to  restore  rent
     based on the restoration of services.

     On January 24, 1991, an inspection of the subject apartment was  conducted
     by a DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of defective conditions. 

     Based on the inspection report,  the  Administrator  issued  an  order  on
     February 14,  1991  denying  the  application  for  rent  restoration  and
     continuing the rent reduction in effect.

     In this petition, the  owner  contends  that  repairs  have  already  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  of  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 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 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-610280-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 Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

     ISSUED:




                                                                   
                                     ELLIOT SANDER
                                     Deputy Commissioner
